Florida pulled off a convincing win over Texas A&M on Saturday, but the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll voters aren’t convinced that the Gators are worthy of a vote just yet. For the fourth-straight week, Florida failed to pick up a vote in the poll and remains on the outside looking in.
It won’t be easy for Florida to make up ground down the stretch with South Carolina and Vanderbilt on the schedule, but the Florida State game could hold some weight. FSU just blew out Miami and is receiving some minor support with 22 points in the poll update.
As far as the rest of the SEC goes, Georgia remains on top of the rankings after a convincing win over Tennessee that sent the Volunteers down three spots to No. 5. LSU moved into the top 10 following an impressive overtime win against Alabama, Ole Miss is at No. 9 and the Crimson Tide slipped to No. 11. Kentucky is the next highest-ranked team in the conference at No. 24, meaning all four of Florida’s losses have come to a ranked opponent.
Mississippi State (11) and South Carolina (3) also received votes but failed to make the top 25.
UCF comes in at No. 21 as the highest-ranked team in the Sunshine State.
