AP Top 25: Florida Gators in top 10, USF remains steady

The Florida Gators moved up two spots to No. 9 in the latest AP Top 25 poll released Sunday. That's their highest ranking since 2015 and sets up a top-10 showdown Saturday against No. 7 Georgia. It'll be the first top-10 matchup between the two rivals since 2008, when the Gators blew out Georgia, 49-10. ESPN's College GameDay will be present for the event. 

UCF stayed at No. 10 after its blowout win over East Carolina (without star quarterback McKenzie Milton, no less). Undefeated USF also stayed put, at No. 21, after an eight-point homecoming win over UConn.

USF's next opponent, Houston, received votes in the poll.

Also of note, Ohio State fell nine spots to No. 11 after its humiliating loss at unranked Purdue. And among the newcomers to the poll: No. 25 Appalachian State.
