Week 7 saw two teams in the top five lose, so as expected, there was considerable movement in the latest edition of the USA Today Coaches Poll. The Florida Gators took down the LSU Tigers, 14-6, and moved from 11th to 6th. The Florida St. Seminoles, on the other hand, were upset by NC State, 17-16, and dropped from 4th to 11th. The Georgia Bulldogs were smoked by the South Carolina Gamecocks 35-7, and dropped all the way from 5th to 12th.
Alabama was on bye, and remained at number one.
