Gators Fall Out of AP Top 25 Following Loss to Volunteers

The Florida Gators are back where they started the 2022 season in the rankings after Saturday's loss to Tennessee.

The Florida Gators received 56 AP Top 25 votes following their 38-33 defeat to the now-No. 8 Tennessee Volunteers, 110 short of the Kansas State Wildcats at No. 25, meaning UF's first rankings appearance under head coach Billy Napier has come to an end three weeks after it began.

No. 12 is where the Gators peaked before falling to No. 18 after their Week 2 loss to Kentucky and sliding to No. 20 following a narrow victory over USF in Week 3.
