Florida's Poll Position: Gators No. 17 in Week 7 USA TODAY poll, AP Top 25

Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

Florida's up to No. 17 in both the coaches poll and the AP Top 25 this week.

The Florida Gators moved up in both major college football polls on Sunday, jumping to No. 17 in the USA TODAY coaches poll and the AP Top 25 for Week 7.

Florida benefited from tough losses by Northwestern and Washington, both of which lost to top-five teams on Saturday, and moved up two positions in the coaches poll and one in the AP Top 25.

Florida's coming schedule just keeps getting rougher, according to these polls: Four of Florida's seven remaining opponents are ranked in the top 12 of the coaches poll, and five future Gators foes are ranked in the AP Top 25.

The full polls are both below.
