The seventh regular season editions of the USA Today Coaches’ Poll and Associated Press Top 25 were released on Sunday with the Alabama Crimson Tide remaining the No. 1-ranked team in the country in both polls. Alabama received 58-of-62 first-place votes from the coaches and picked up 55-of-60 first-place votes from the AP voters.

The Florida Gators (4-2, 3-1 SEC), fresh off a tough 17-6 road loss at LSU, fell five spots in both polls. The Gators were listed at No. 22 in both the USA Today rankings and AP top 25. Florida checked in with 240 (-354) and 249 points (-287), losing major ground in the respective rankings.

    We’ve lost to a top 15 and a top 10 team on the road. I’m comfortable with #22. This weekend will decide if we can hover in the rankings or if we drop out.
