LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Florida Gators are in a familiar spot after this weekends win over the University of Kentucky - atop the Southeastern Conference's East Division.
At 5-2, Florida vaulted to Number 9 in this week's college football poll, despite back-to-back losses earlier this month to Auburn and Louisiana State University. Florida beat Kentucky 45-37 on Saturday.
Kentucky will now have to find a way to bounce back after a draining stretch against the S-E-C elite.
The Wildcats - who fell to Number 14 - host Mississippi State on Saturday before closing against Georgia, Vanderbilt and Tennessee.
The chance at a berth in the conference title game is still there if they can regain the momentum that carried them into the top 10 for the first time in 30 years.
