Florida Football: CBS Sports college football ranking for Week 2 – Gators Wire

  • September 13, 2022

Week 2 of the 2022 college football season did not treat the Florida Gators well. After opening the season with an upset victory over the Utah Utes to catapult into the top 25, the Kentucky Wildcats came to Gainesville and left with a win to spoil the home SEC opener.
While the Wildcats are a formidable squad, coming into the weekend ranked No. 20 in both major polls, they were an underdog by nearly a touchdown and behind the Gators, who sat at Nos. 12 and 19 in the AP and coaches polls, respectively. However, the tables have flipped after Florida’s disappointing defeat.
Now, the Orange and Blue are ranked Nos. 21 and 18, respectively, in those two major polls, while ESPN’s power rankings have Florida at No. 11. and USA TODAY Sports’ re-rank has it at No. 16. That only scratches the surface of the latest batch of rankings.
CBS Sports’ Chip Patterson threw his hat into the ring with his college football rankings, in which the Gators landed at No. 20. That is pretty much the midpoint between the two major polls. Florida dropped nine spots after the loss, however, holding the No. 11 spot prior to last weekend.
In case you are wondering, Kentucky jumped 13 spots to No. 10, joining the Georgia Bulldogs (No. 1), Alabama Crimson Tide (No. 2) and Arkansas Razorbacks (No. 9) as the Southeastern Conference representatives in the top 10. The Tennessee Volunteers (No. 12), Ole Miss Rebels (No. 19) and Mississippi State Bulldogs (No. 23) join the Gators to round out the top 25.
