COLLEGE FOOTBALL / DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NATION : Florida Atop Another Poll
The Florida Gators, No. 3 in their own state for the past decade, are now No. 1 in the nation in yet another poll.
Long overshadowed by Florida State and Miami, the Gators are the preseason pick as college football’s top team in the Associated Press poll. Florida was picked No. 1 Friday in the USA TODAY/CNN poll.
UCLA was 14th and USC was 17th.
Florida (1,416 points) edged Notre Dame by two points, the narrowest margin since the preseason poll began in 1950.
