Florida Gators Fall Out of AP Top 25 After Loss to LSU

For the first time since 2018, the Florida Gators are unranked.

As expected, the Florida Gators are now unranked, falling out of the AP Top 25 following their second upset loss of the season.

The Gators dropped out of the top ten to No 20 after their loss to the Kentucky Wildcats two weeks ago, and received a mere seven top 25 votes this week in the wake of their defeat to the LSU Tigers on Saturday.

As Thomas Goldkamp of Swamp247 pointed out prior to the Week 8 rankings release, this marks the first time since Dan Mullen's debut season as UF's head coach in 2018 that Florida has been left out of the poll.

Following a bye this week, Florida will face the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday, Oct. 30 in Jacksonville, Fla.
