After pulling out a 14-point victory against Ole Miss on Saturday and seeing losses to Kansas and Michigan, the Florida Gators rose to the No. 2 slot in both The Associated Press rankings and USA Today Coaches Poll on Monday.
The Gators haven’t enjoyed a ranking this high since being No. 1 during the week of Feb. 12 in 2007.
Florida received seven first-place votes in the AP poll, while garnering six in the Coaches Poll. The Gators only trail Indiana, which is ranked No. 1 in both polls.
Florida also received a boost in the RPI rankings this week, jumping from No. 5 to No. 3 behind Duke and in-state foe Miami, which is ranked No. 2 in the rankings.
The Gators will hit the road to take on Arkansas on Tuesday at 7 p.m. The game will be shown live on ESPN.
