Florida Gators ranked No. 11 in College Football Playoff poll

The Florida Gators (8-1, 6-1 SEC) dropped one spot in the College Football Playoff rankings following their 9-7 win over Vanderbilt on homecoming and are ranked No. 11 in the second College Football Playoff rankings of the season.

While Florida’s win over Vanderbilt was less than inspiring, teams previously ranked in front of them stumbling last weekend could have aided the Gators. Then No. 2 LSU fell to Alabama 30-16, No. 8 TCU was exposed by Oklahoma State, 49-29 and No. 7 Michigan State lost a heartbreaker to Nebraska.

Florida will travel to unranked South Carolina to finish up their conference schedule before returning home for games against FAU and No. 16 Florida State.

This is the second of six rankings that will be released by the committee, with the final ranking, and subsequent naming of the four teams that will partake in the College Football Playoff, coming on December 6, following a full weekend of conference championship games.

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
