Alabama remains the unanimous No. 1 in the AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll released on Sunday following Week 3 action, receiving 50-of-61 first-place votes in the former and 59-of-64 first-place votes in the latter.

The Florida Gators, which entered the season ranked for the first time since 2013 at No. 25 in both polls, fell out of the AP Top 25 two weeks ago. After a big 32-0 shutout of North Texas, however, UF continued its rise in the polls.

The Gators checked in at No. 19 in the AP Top 25 (moving up four spots) and No. 16 in the Coaches Poll (up seven spots) with 479 points (up 274) in the former and 598 points (up 331) in the latter.
