Having won seven of their last eight games including a close victory at Auburn and dominating triumph against Arkansas at home this week, the Florida Gators (15-4, 4-1 SEC) earned their way back into the Top 25 polls for the first time in over a month. Whether or not they can remain ranked in the polls with a difficult Southeastern Conference slate ahead remains to be seen.

    Don’t get excited – they will likely stumble right back out…

    1 More win Saturday and 50% of your poll is wrong. Gator fans are tough on their team. We aren’t great, but we are good enough to be top 25 in the nation for a few weeks this year.
