The Florida Gators rank No. 15 in the week ten BCS standings, inching them to within one spot of fulfilling one of the requirements to earn an at-large BCS bowl birth. The BCS ranking is just one of the many requirements needed for a team to become an at-large selection, that is if there are even at-large bids available.
The Gators also jumped up one spot to No. 17 in the AP poll. Florida jumped over last week's No. 17 team Alabama who lost to LSU over the weekend.
Florida actually dropped a spot in the USA Today/Coaches poll, moving from No. 17 to No. 18. The Big East leading Connecticut Huskies leaped over the Gators, causing them to lose ground.
With their win over the Crimson Tide, LSU is now back on pace to represent the SEC for a second straight season in the BCS title game. The Tigers rank No. 2 in the BCS standings, as well as both polls. Seven SEC teams are ranked in the AP top 25. Georgia remains at No. 10, and Auburn, Tennessee, Alabama and Kentucky are all ranked. The Wildcats moved into the top 25 despite a bye week.
Also, all seven teams are ranked in the USA Today/Coaches poll and made the BCS standings. No other conference has more than four teams in the BCS standings.
