Fueled by an impressive 38-10 win over then No. 3 ranked Ole Miss Rebels, the Florida Gators (5-0, 3-0 SEC) have jumped up to No. 11 in the country in the Associated Press Top-25 poll.

The Gators entered the game on Saturday ranked inside the AP Top-25 for the first time since November of 2013 and played in a matchup of top-25 teams for the first time since 2012.

This is the highest Florida has been ranked since they began the 2013 season ranked no. 10 in the nation.

Florida will travel to Missouri next week before taking on No. 7 LSU in Baton Rouge. Ole Miss fell from No. 3 to No. 14 in the poll and Florida leapfrogged Florida State, who came in ranked No. 12.

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.
