College Football Update: Florida tired of being in top five

Just a couple of days after top ranked USC loses, Florida decides that they want to be as cool as the kids in LA and lose a tough game to a conference opponent.

The Gators lost to Ole Miss, 31-30, after a Jonathan Phillips extra point was blocked with less than a minute to go in the game.

The Rebels were down 17-7 at halftime, but managed to outscore the Gators in the second half 24-13.

Jevan Snead had two touchdown passes and 185 yards in the air for the Rebels. Snead threw a 86-yard touchdown pass to Shay Hodge in the fourth quarter to put the Rebels ahead for good.

Gators quarterback Tim Tebow had 319 yards passing with only one touchdown pass.

The loss will hurt the Gators in the SEC and could knock them out of the top 10 when the polls come out next week.
