The latest CBS Sports rankings saw Florida football take a significant fall. It is currently the No. 49 team in the nation and the No. 9 team in the SEC — a drop of 19 spots overall and three spots in the SEC.
The Gators are coming off a disappointing 31-24 loss to Vanderbilt, putting them at 6-5, with all five of their losses coming in SEC play. The Gators looked horrendous in that game as injuries, penalties, and inconsistent play all played a part in the loss.
Offensively, Florida couldn’t establish its dominant run game, recording 45 total rush yards, with 30 of those yards coming on two runs. Defensively, penalties reared their ugly head. Vanderbilt even scored a touchdown on a muffed punt that went into the end zone. Overall, not a great day at the office.
Florida’s final regular season game will be played on the road when they take a short trip to Tallahassee to take on Florida State in a special Black Friday edition of the Sunshine State Showdown. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. EST and the game will be broadcast on ABC Sports.
