Gators Slip to No. 2, But Remain No. 1????

In the Swamp, the Florida Gators remain undefeated, but are no longer the top team in the country... AP voting pushed Alabama in front of UF after their recent struggles with Arkansas... It should be noted that the Florida Gators were named the nation's No. 1 team on the BCS college football poll released this week for the first time.

Part of the struggle defensively could be the nagging groin injury to All-SEC linebacker Brandon Spikes. With 32 tackles, 4.5 tackles for a loss, 3 sacks and 1 forced fumble, his playmaking ability has been sorely missed. "That's a big loss, not even sometimes with his play because when the other guy goes out there and plays middle linebacker, he does a great job, but just the way he gets the defense up and just having him out there to motivate you, motivate players to go. Missing that is a big loss." said Florida junior cornerback Joe Haden
