The Florida Gators moved up one place to No. 10 in the AP Top 25 following a 38-14 win over the Tennessee Volunteers.

It is the first time the Gators have been ranked in the top 10 this season - they had been at No. 11 for the last two weeks. The Gators started the season at No. 13, moved up to No. 11 after their win over USF, and held that spot after a two-point loss to top-ranked Alabama.

Arkansas - fresh off a win over Texas A&M - leapfrogged the Gators to No. 8, and Notre Dame jumped the Gators to No. 9 as well after a convincing win over Wisconsin. Those teams were ranked No. 16 and No. 12, respectively, coming into the week. 

There are seven SEC teams in the Top 25 - six of which are in the Top 15. Alabama and Georgia remain the top-ranked teams.
