For the first time this season, the Florida Gators remained where they were in the SB Nation FanPulse Top 25 from week to week.

But ahead of the Gators, we got the first major shakeup of the year, as Alabama overtook Clemson as the poll’s No. 1 team.

The Crimson Tide, fresh off Devonta Smith’s five-touchdown performance in another rout, moved up as the defending national champions — who survived an upset bid by North Carolina — moved down to No. 2.

This movement mirrors that in the Associated Press and USA TODAY coaches’ polls, which each elevated the Tide narrowly past Clemson — in the case of the latter rankings, doing so despite Clemson receiving one more first-place vote than Alabama got.

Florida, meanwhile, sits at No. 9 for the second straight week, and has plenty of potential damage to do going forward, with No. 7 Auburn and No. 5 LSU on its schedule in the next two weeks and a showdown with No. 3 Georgia looming at month’s end.

Florida fans’ assessment of their own team also seems to be in line with the national sentiment, with the Gators coming in at No. 9 with the Alligator Army voting contingent.

But interestingly, our neck of the woods sees LSU, not Clemson, as the nation’s No. 2 team at present — a sentiment that is shared by only the communities devoted to Auburn, LSU, and Texas.
