Week 10 was miserable.

Georgia Overview

The Georgia football team showed up physically in Jacksonville, but mentally they were with their classmates on the beach in St. Simons.  Florida beat down Georgia 38-20 in probably the most uninspired game the Dawgs have played since the 35-7 drubbing in Columbia in 2012. In the words of Forrest Gump, "That’s all I have to say about that."

Movers

Fell Out: #21 East Carolina

Newcomers: #25 Wisconsin

Overrated

#17 Georgia.  Thought we’d fall more.  Probably should have really.

Underrated

#2 Florida State.  Ok, FSU isn’t really underrated (or liked).  However, I would have voted the Seminoles number one.  They clearly aren’t as good as last year’s team, but they keep finding ways to win, which has to count for something.  Plus, Mississippi State looks as if that #1 ranking weighs heavy on their shoulders.

This Week’s Top 25 Matchups

#10 Baylor at #16 Oklahoma

#8 Notre Dame at #11 Arizona State

#9 Kansas State at #6 TCU

#4 Alabama at #14 LSU

#13 Ohio State at #7 Michigan State

#5 Oregon at #20 Utah

Upset Alert

Louisville had the upset last week within reach, but FSU roared back against a fairly classic Todd Grantham defense to keep their win streak alive.

This week, I’m going with two minor upsets.  Both Baylor and Notre Dame will be knocked out of the playoff running when they go on the road to face Oklahoma and Arizona State, respectively.
