Florida moved up a spot in the latest Associated Press and USA Today coaches' college football polls released Sunday.
UF is No. 5 after ending its regular season with an impressive 37-26 win over Florida State in Tallahassee on Saturday.
With no top-5 upsets Saturday, Florida should remain No. 4 in the BCS standings that will be released later Sunday. No. 1 Notre Dame (12-0) earned a trip to the BCS national championship game Jan. 7 in Miami against the No. 2 Alabama-No. 3 Georgia winner of the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 1 in Atlanta.
The Gators (11-1), expected to gain an invite from the Sugar Bowl, will learn their official postseason fate Dec. 2 on the BCS Selection Show.
The only difference in the two polls Sunday comes at No. 4, where the AP has Ohio State (12-0) and the coaches have Oregon (11-1). Ohio State's season ended Saturday and are on NCAA probation.
