In one season under Dan Mullen, the Florida Gators have gone from 4-7 and unranked to a Top-10 program again.
This remarkable turnaround season received its exclamation point early today: the 10-3 Gators are ranked No. 7, tied with Georgia, in the final Associated Press rankings and No. 6 in the final Amway Coaches Poll. It’s UF’s first top-10 finish since 2012, when the 11-2 Gators ended the season in the No. 9 spot coming off a loss to Louisville in the Sugar Bowl.
Unlike the 2012 team, the 2018 Gators finished their season with a flourish — back-to-back one-sided wins over FSU and No. 7 Michigan in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on Dec. 29.
