Following a 20-17 win on the road against Texas A&M, the Gators have moved up to No. 17 in the USA TODAY College Football Top 25 Coaches' Poll.
The Gators were ranked 23 following their less than impressive victory over Bowling Green to open the season.
Alabama, LSU, USC, Oregon and Oklahoma top the Coaches' poll.
In the Associated Press Top 25, media members move the Gators up to No. 18 from No. 24 a week ago.
Tennessee, who the Gators will play Saturday in Knoxville, moves in to the AP Top 25 this week. The Vols were not ranked last week. The Vols are not ranked in the Coaches' Poll but are ranked 4th among other teams receiving votes, with 71 total voting points.
Saturday's game will kick off at 6 p.m. ET from Neyland Stadium. For the first time in eight years, the Florida-Tennessee matchup will be played at night and televised on ESPN.
