The Florida Gators just can’t settle in at one spot in SB Nation’s FanPulse Top 25: A week after dropping two spots to No. 10, the Gators moved back up to No. 9 after a convincing win over Tennessee.

Notre Dame and Utah falling out of the top 10 after suffering their first losses of the season helped make room for the Gators to rise, though Wisconsin leap-frogging Florida after dominating Michigan limited their upward mobility.

Florida and the rest of the bottom of the top 10 are still looking up at a top six that stubbornly refuses to change or admit new members. Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, and Ohio State remain that leading sextet in order for a second straight week, while the Gators’ next SEC foe, Auburn, is taking its first bow at No. 7.

As usual, though, the Alligator Army segment of that voter base is slightly kinder to the Gators. Florida moved up one spot to No. 8 in our estimation this week.
