The Florida Gators continue their rise in the AP Top 25 poll.
After cracking the top 15 for the first time since September of 2013, Florida is now ranked in the top 10, coming in at No. 8. This is the highest ranking for the Gators since they were No. 3 at the end of the 2012 regular season.
The Gators jumped up three spots from last week’s poll. Florida was ranked No. 11 after beating then-No.3 Ole Miss.
Next weekend, Florida will take on No. 6 LSU in Baton Rouge. Who knows? Perhaps this game is the preview for the SEC Championship matchup in December.
