Florida nowhere to be seen in USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll after losing to Georgia

Florida’s loss to Georgia on Saturday didn’t do the program any favors in the latest update of the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll.

The Gators once again went without a single vote in the weekly update after a three-point loss to the Bulldogs. This is the third straight week that Florida hasn’t received support from coaches across the country, and there’s little reason to think Florida will climb back into the top 25 by the end of the season.

As for the rest of the SEC, Georgia remains at the top of the college football world at No. 1 in the rankings and 45 of a possible 63 first-place votes. Tennessee stayed at No. 3 after beating Kentucky at No. 24, and Alabama is still at No. 6 in the playoff hunt. Ole Miss holds onto a top 10 spot, and LSU is at No. 17 to round out the list.

Arkansas, South Carolina and Mississippi State each had 10 points or less in the final voting tally.

Not a single member of Florida’s “Big 3” (UF, FSU and Miami) received a vote this week, but UCF is now 25th on the list. Maybe winning the Gasparilla Bowl wasn’t a fluke after all?
