Florida Football: Gators fall in Week 2 USA TODAY Sports Coaches poll – Gators Wire

Florida’s Week 2 loss to the Kentucky Wildcats may have seemed like the end of the world, but the Gators only fell two spots in the latest USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll to No. 21.
Last week, the Associated Press ranked Florida as high as No. 12 in the nation, but the Coaches Poll had him at No. 19 — one spot in front of Kentucky — and that proved to be more accurate. Of course, UK ended up being better than expected and has now shot up to No. 10 following a 2-0 start.
The good news is Florida is still ranked. The bad news is that it’s not anywhere near the top of the conference. Alabama and Georgia remain at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, both in the conference and country. Arkansas is battling Kentucky for the No. 3 spot in the SEC and is ranked just behind them at No. 11 on the Coaches Poll.
Tennessee, Florida’s Week 4 opponent, sits at No. 16 and Ole Miss is No. 17. The Gators are one spot ahead of the Texas A&M Aggies, but they just lost to Appalachian State in a low-scoring affair.
As far as the in-state rivals, Florida State remains on the outside of the top 25 but should be next in if they can keep up the winning streak. Miami is ranked No. 13 and climbing.
