Coming off a 44-28 victory over (former) No. 5 ranked Georgia, the Florida Gators have risen to No. 5 in the Amway Coaches Poll. Florida was ranked No. 8 in last week’s poll.
The Gators’ win over the Bulldogs puts them in the driver’s seat in the East for an SEC title game berth. The victory also puts Florida in the College Football Playoff discussion.
Florida sits behind Alabama (6-0), Notre Dame (7-0), Ohio State (3-0), and Clemson (7-1) but one spot ahead of Texas A&M (5-1), who handed the Gators their only loss.
