The Florida Gators football team is now in the AP College Football Top 25 after a 53-6 rout of Charleston Southern.

The Gators were left off the preseason poll, but a performance featuring five touchdowns from quarterback Feleipe Franks and a defense that recorded three sacks and an INT on the night puts them in the 25th spot.

Only two teams fell out of the top 25. In-state rival Florida State after a disappointing 24-3 game against Virginia Tech. The Seminoles were previously ranked 19th. The Texas Longhorns (previously No. 23) took a 34-19 loss against Maryland.

The Miami Hurricanes dropped from 8th to 21st after taking a 33-17 L at the hands of LSU, who jumped 10 spots from 25 to 15.
