Florida enters AP top 10 with convincing win over Missouri
Florida is back in the top 10 of the AP Poll for the first time since the 2013 preseason poll.
The Gators climbed 14 spots from No. 25 to No. 11 last week, a season-high for any team so far this season. And this week, Florida’s resounding 21-3 road victory at Missouri on Saturday bumped it up three more spots.
Florida (6-0) is one of only three undefeated SEC teams left — along with LSU (5-0) and Texas A&M (5-0) — and next week will see the No. 8 Gators and No. 6 Tigers collide in Death Valley for just the second matchup of AP top 10 teams this season, the other being No. 7 Oregon and No. 5 Michigan State in Week 2.
As far as the Coaches Poll goes, Florida only moved up one spot to No. 11.
Despite being the 4th-highest ranked SEC team in both polls, the Gators are the only team among those four that is 6-0.
