The Gators fall down a spot after a near-loss to Floria Atlantic.

The Florida Gators may have moved to 10-1 after their close-call win over Florida Atlantic in week 12, but it wasn't enough to help them improve their standing in the Coaches Poll or the AP Poll. In fact, the Gators actually dropped down in both polls to No. 9 (Coaches) and No. 10 in the country (AP).

The Gators were jumped in the Coaches Poll by both No. 7 Baylor (defeated No. 10 Oklahoma State) and No. 6 Michigan State (defeated No. 2 Ohio State). The Gators are now the seventh rated one-loss team.

In the AP Poll, No. 6 Michigan State and No. 7 Baylor also jumped the Gators. They're the eighth-rated one-loss team in that poll.

Florida's opponent in the season finale - Florida State - rose to No. 14 in the Coaches Poll. Elsewhere across the SEC, Alabama moved up to No. 2, Ole Miss jumped up six spots to No. 19 and Mississippi State moved up to No. 22. All three teams pulled out wins on Saturday, over Charleston Southern, LSU and Arkansas, respectively.

In the AP Poll, Florida State also rose to No. 14. Alabama (No. 2), Ole Miss (No. 19) and Mississippi State (No. 23) account for the rest of the SEC.
