Week 9 of the 2020 college football season saw the Florida Gators back in action after the team missed consecutive weeks amid a COVID-19 outbreak within the program that impacted at least three dozen players and a handful of coaches. Florida missed two weeks of action and went 20 days between games, though it was able to bounce back with a huge 41-17 victory against Missouri on Saturday.

With the new college football rankings now out, the Gators have moved up two spots to No. 8 in the AP Top 25 and one spot to No. 8 in the Coaches Poll. This due primarily to Oklahoma State being upset by Texas.

Clemson held as the unanimous No. 1 team in the nation, though Alabama gained considerable ground despite remaining in the No. 2 spot. Ohio State remained the unanimous No. 3, while Notre Dame stuck at No. 4.

Georgia sits as the No. 5 team in the nation ahead of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party on Saturday, making the game a top-10 matchup for the third straight season.

With LSU and Tennessee dropping out of the AP Top 25 two weeks ago, Florida only has one game left against a top 25 opponent this season (UGA) down from five earlier this year when LSU, UT and Kentucky were ranked.

Let’s take a look at the latest sets of college football rankings.
