Gators make huge jump in AP Poll

Take this in for a moment, Gator Nation. We are looking at a Top 5 team – No. 4 to be exact – in the second week of October. We are showing right now why the University of Florida has one of the Top 5 football programs in the country.

Florida State has had ample time to climb back to national prominence, and Georgia really has no excuse, but here we are in October with Florida sitting in the Top 5 without a loss.
