Florida Gators Rise To No. 11, No 12 In AP/Coaches Polls

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

After the Florida Gators shut out an SEC opponent for the first time since 2001 on Saturday, everyone knew the Gators would rise in the rankings. How far they would rise, exactly, was up for debate.

Now we know: The Gators rose three spots in the AP Poll, to No. 11, and they rose just two spots to No. 12 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Who would have thought, that after four games this year the Gators would be knocking on the door of the Top 10?

Not me. But let's just say that I'm a fan of being pleasantly surprised.

The Gators' opponent in two weeks, the LSU Tigers, were passed in both polls by Oregon and they'll be at No. 3 this week. Depending on the results during the week and Saturday, the Gators could be in the Top 10 when LSU visits The Swamp on October 6th.

As is tradition, other teams of note:

I know that's only three teams, but we already know where Alabama, Auburn, Miami, Tennessee or any other team that we as Gators fans care about place in the rankings. Alabama is the near unanimous No. 1 while the other three teams are lucky to be receiving votes.
