AP Top 25 Poll: Rebels move up one spot
Alabama remained in the top spot in both polls while Georgia stayed in the number two spot. The Bulldogs received one first-place vote in the coaches’ poll and four from the AP voters.
Arkansas, by virtue of its 20-10 win over Texas A&M, jumped eight spots to number eight in the AP and stayed just outside the top ten in the coaches’ poll, checking in at number 11.
The AP has Florida ranked tenth, Texas A&M 15th and Auburn number 22 to give the Southeastern Conference seven teams in this week’s poll. Kentucky and LSU each received votes.
Kentucky slipped into the coaches’ poll at number 23 to give the SEC eight schools represented by the coaches.
