Tennessee is moving down and out of the Top 10 in the latest AP Top 25 poll heading into the third week of the college football season.

Coming off of the 30-13 victory over Austin Peay in Knoxville, the Volunteers now sit at No. 11 in the AP Top 25 poll. Tennessee previously sat at No. 9 in the country last week.

Texas moved up from No. 11 to No. 4 after defeating Alabama in Tuscaloosa which meant that one of the Top 10 teams had to fall out, which ended up being Tennessee. Alabama, on the other hand, fell back seven spots to No. 10 thus remaining in the Top 10. The Crimson Tide are the highest-ranked one-loss team in the nation with three undefeated teams including Tennessee, Utah, and Oregon behind them.

Alabama’s lone win this year was a victory over Middle Tennessee State.

The Vols enter the third week of the season 2-0 after a 49-13 victory over Virginia in week one and a 30-13 victory over Austin Peay in week two.

Tennessee is the third highest-ranked team from the SEC out of the five teams that are in the poll. No. 1-ranked Georgia continues to lead the nation followed by No. 10 Alabama, No. 11 Tennessee, No. 14 LSU, and No. 17 Ole Miss. The Texas A&M Aggies fell out of the Top 25 following a loss to Miami on the road.

This is the 18th straight week of Tennessee being ranked in the AP Top 25 poll dating back to Week 2 (9/6/22) of the 2022 season.

The Florida Gators (1-1) will host No. 11 Tennessee (2-0) this Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. ET in Gainesville, Florida.
