Gators move into AP Top 10 after a win over Volunteers

·2 min read

Florida beat Tennessee convincingly enough in Week 4 to move up one spot in the AP Poll and into the Top 10. Emory Jones looked as good as ever for the Gators, and the country is starting to consider Florida a contender alongside the other conference powers.

Florida could have moved up a bit more, but another team from the Southeastern Conference pulled off a pretty big upset this weekend. Arkansas upset Texas A&M on Saturday and jumped ahead of Florida and No. 12 Ole Miss to No. 8. The Aggies fell from No. 7 to No. 15 with the loss, dropping from third to sixth-highest ranked in the conference.

Notre Dame also moved ahead of Florida but Clemson and Ohio State struggled enough to fall out of the Top 10 and make room. The top three teams in the country remain the same with No. 3 Oregon behind No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Georgia.

Auburn is the last SEC team on the AP Top 25 at No. 22. The Tigers needed a last-minute comeback to beat Georgia State this week, but they weren’t punished after one of the more hectic weeks across college football.
