Gators make up some ground in The Athletic’s Week 7 rankings

The Florida Gators emerged victorious from their road game against the South Carolina Gamecocks, winning 41-39 and improving to a 5-2 record halfway through the 2023 season. Despite recent struggles, this exciting nail-biter delivered a much-needed win for the Gator Nation.

In The Athletic’s weekly rankings for Power Five teams, the Orange and Blue moved up two spots to No. 27 following their Week 7 win. Last week, they were ranked at No. 29 overall.

The SEC is well-represented in the top 10 rankings, with the Georgia Bulldogs coming in at No. 2 and the Alabama Crimson Tide at No. 9. The Ole Miss Rebels (No. 17), LSU Tigers (No. 19), and Missouri Tigers (No. 20) also make an appearance in the top 25.

The Gators have a bye week ahead before their highly anticipated showdown against Georgia, which is considered the biggest game on their schedule. Known as the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, this game will be held on October 28 at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida, with a kickoff time of 3:30 p.m. EDT. CBS Sports will broadcast the game.
