Georgia Overview

Georgia went to Auburn and downed the Tigers 20-13 in a game that saw the Bulldogs struggle on offense once again.  Wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie scored both of the Dawgs’ touchdowns, including an electric 53 yard punt return.

The Dawgs will play their final game at Sanford Stadium this season when Georgia Southern comes to Athens on Saturday.

Movers

Fell Out: #18 UCLA, #20 Mississippi State, #21 Temple, #25 Memphis

Newcomers: #22 USC, #23 Oregon, #24 Washington State, #25 Ole Miss

Overrated

#4 Oklahoma State.  Yes, the Cowboys are 10-0 and control their own destiny, but they only have one victory of quality on their resume.  They’ll end the season against Baylor and Oklahoma, and I feel they will lose one if not both of those games.

Underrated

#22 USC.  The Trojans had their struggles at the beginning of the season, but they are cooking now having won four straight.  USC controls its own destiny and they have a great shot of winning the Pac 12 championship.

This Week’s Top 25 Matchups

#17 LSU at #25 Ole Miss

#22 USC at #23 Oregon

#20 Northwestern at #21 Wisconsin

#9 Michigan State at #2 Ohio State

#10 Baylor at #4 Oklahoma State

#11 TCU at #7 Oklahoma

Upset Alert

Last week I correctly predicted Oklahoma going to Waco and defeating Baylor.

This week, I’ve got Ole Miss giving LSU their third consecutive loss.
