After coming away with an upset victory over the LSU Tigers Saturday, the Florida Gators are gaining even more national recognition for their play on the field, which has led them to a 5-0 record, including wins over four SEC opponents.

The Gators essentially replace the Florida State Seminoles in the top portion of the rankings. With the Seminoles' catastrophic loss to N.C. State, they drop from No. 3 to 17.
