Where Florida lands in USA TODAY Sports' Week 8 re-rank after bye – Gators Wire

The Florida Gators got a bit of a breather during Week 8 of the college football season with a bye ahead of their annual rivalry game against the Georgia Bulldogs in Jacksonville on Oct. 29. It was a rough first half of the 2022 season for the team, managing just a 4-3 record (1-3 in the SEC) to open the Billy Napier era in Gainesville, and the upcoming opponent will be its toughest one yet.
While the Orange and Blue was not in action last Saturday, plenty of other programs took the field to continue their autumn campaigns. Now that the dust has settled from those grueling gridiron matchups, USA TODAY Sports’ Paul Myerberg published his re-ranking of all 131 Football Bowl Subdivision schools, including Florida.
Take a look below at a breakdown of where each current SEC school lands in the updated rankings, with a tip of the hat to regional editor Patrick Conn for putting together the data over at Razorbacks Wire.
