Alabama remains the unanimous No. 1 in the AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll released on Sunday following Week 10 action, receiving 60-of-61 first-place votes in the former and 62-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 and briefly fell out of the AP Top 25, have taken a major hit since emerging as a unanimous top-10 team in the nation one week ago.

The Gators checked in at No. 22 in the AP Top 25 (down 12 spots) and No. 16 in the Coaches Poll (down seven spots). Florida has 390 points (-539) in the former and 486 points (-553) in the latter.
