Gators up one spot in AP Poll going into Week 3


Florida entered the AP Top 25 last week after the Gators snapped a seven-game losing streak to Florida State. An easy victory over Milwaukee has the Gators up one spot going into Week 3 at No. 23.

Kentucky and Alabama are tied for the tenth spot in the poll, and Arkansas is right behind them at No. 13. Tennessee (No. 15) and Auburn (No. 19) make it five SEC teams ahead of Florida as is the case in the Coaches Poll. LSU received six points in the voting, but the Tigers are still a few wins away from cracking the top 25.

Florida has started the season off well enough to get ranked, but the Gators will have to succeed within conference play this year to keep moving up. The Big Ten seems to be the conference stumbling early in the year, and the SEC is off to a decent start.

If the Gators can make a run in the Fort Myers Tip-Off, Florida could move up a few more spots next week, especially if it beats No. 21 Seton Hall in the process.

Here’s how the full top 25 shakes out heading into Week 3 of the season.
