10. Murray State (23-0)—Despite winning in the not-so-strong Ohio Valley Conference, the Racers deserve the ranking here because they’re the last team remaining unbeaten. This week: versus Tennessee State (Thursday), versus Austin Peay (Saturday). Previous: 10

9. Florida (19-4)—Gators have quietly won seven straight since their loss at Tennessee and have a great opportunity this week to move up even higher. This week: at Kentucky (Tuesday), versus Tennessee (Saturday). Previous: NR
