The Oklahoma Sooners held on to their season-long No. 1 spot in the USA Today Coaches Poll, while the LSU Tigers kept the No. 1 ranking they earned from the Associated Press last week when the latest top 25 polls were released on Sunday. The Florida Gators (4-1, 2-1 SEC), fresh off a 38-10 beatdown from the Alabama Crimson Tide, understandably fell in both rankings.

    That’s fair. As bad as we looked, I could have seen us dropping more

    After next week we will be hanging on in the polls after our LSU game. Hopefully we will be able to climb back up the polls …

    Jeez you guys going in with the attitude that we lose against LSU is a terrible way to go into battle!
