Florida didn’t exactly enter conference play with a lot of momentum. It lost three of its six contests in December, and though the team was out of action for more than two weeks with a COVID-19 outbreak — which resulted in the postponement of the SEC opener against Ole Miss — it was able to get back to full strength just in time for a stretch of three-straight Quadrant 1 matchups.
The first of those two didn’t go as planned, as the Gators suffered double-digit losses at home to Alabama and on the road against Auburn. As the team sits at 9-5 on the year and 0-2 in conference play, it is no longer receiving any votes in the USA TODAY Sports Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll after getting four last week.
As far as the rest of the SEC goes, the Tigers are all the way up to No. 4 in the country as they just have one loss on the season. LSU is next at No. 12, followed by No. 17 Kentucky, No. 23 Tennessee and the Crimson Tide, who are coming off a puzzling loss at Missouri, fell to No. 25. No schools outside of that group are currently receiving votes.
Here’s the full poll for the week.
