UF football ranks 17th despite beating two of the top four teams last season

The AP Top 25 poll came out putting FSU in fourth and UF in 17th.

The Associated Press Top 25 college football came out this week with dismal predictions for the Gators.

The University of Florida's football team ranked 17th despite their 9-4 record last year. FSU came in third right behind Ohio State, and Alabama took first with a record of 14 wins and one loss. The Gators were responsible for Alabama's only loss.

The AP Top 25 is determined by 61 sports writers across the nation who vote and calculate rankings by using a point system. Regardless of how confusing it might seem, it holds a lot of weight in determining the NCAA Champion teams.

Let’s hope the Gators can prove the polls wrong this season in time for the National Championships.
