It shouldn't come as a surprise that, despite a win in Week 3, the Florida Gators have slipped from No. 18 to No. 20 in the latest AP Top 25 following a nail-biting, 31-28 victory over the USF Bulls on Saturday night.

The Gators peaked at No. 12 in the poll entering Week 2, originally soaring up and into the rankings for upsetting the formerly No. 7 Utah Utes in the season-opener. It's been downhill since, as Florida lost by double digits to now-No. 8 Kentucky last Saturday before the showing against USF.

Florida is one of eight SEC teams represented in the latest poll, the seventh-highest ranked member of the conference. The Gators will travel to Knoxville, Tenn. this week for their first road game of the season, taking on the No. 11 Tennessee Volunteers.
