A three-point loss to UCF on Wednesday pushed Florida further down the polls, and right out of the AP Poll.
The Gators started the year ranked No. 9 in the preseason AP Poll, but a loss to Ohio State and close wins to lesser opponents dropped them to No. 18. Falling to the Knights dropped them out of the poll, and Florida is first on the list of teams receiving votes. So, technically, 26th.
They also slid in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, falling from 16th to 24th.
Florida (6-2, 0-0 SEC) faces Kent State in the O’Connell Center Thursday night before taking a nine days off for final exams.
