Florida (13-2) moved up three spots to No. 7 in the Associated Press poll on Monday afternoon.

The Gators have won seven straight games and have opened up Southeastern Conference play with victories over South Carolina and Arkansas.

Florida will play Georgia on Tuesday night.

After 11 ranked teams lost at least one game, the changes started at No. 3 where Wisconsin moved up one spot to replace Ohio State, which lost two games and dropped to 11th. Michigan State was fourth followed by Wichita State, Villanova, Florida, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and San Diego State.

One of Florida’s two losses came at Wisconsin on Nov. 12.
