Rankings: Florida ninth...and you'll never believe who's at No.6

-"No.10 If Auburn holds Florida's offense to 20 or fewer points, then a drink an Alabama Slammer. And then drink another, and then drink another, and then drink another" ... Sound familiar?

GAINESVILLE -- One of the strangest Saturday's in college football this decade leaves us with this: South Florida is ranked ahead of Florida in the latest Associated Press college football poll. The Bulls beat then-No.5 West Virginia on Friday night while Florida lost to unranked Auburn. South Florida was previously ranked No.18.

Reminder: South Florida's football program is 11 years old. Florida's football program is 101 years old.

Five Top 10 teams were beaten this weekend (and seven in the top 13) but that doesn't explain why LSU jumped USC for the top spot. Both teams won. (Guess voters finally came to their senses.)
