The AP Top 25 has been updated entering week four of the 2021 college football season. A two-point loss to the nation's No. 1 team, the Alabama Crimson Tide, created a convincing enough argument to keep the Florida Gators in the No. 11 spot for a second week in a row.

UF began the year at No. 13 in the AP Top 25 and jumped up to No. 11 following its week two victory over USF. Seven SEC teams can be found in the latest rankings, including five teams within the top 15 - Florida being the fourth-highest ranked SEC squad on the list.
