Georgia Overview

Georgia bounced back against the Kentucky Wildcats, winning 27-3 in a game that saw Sony Michel run for 165 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown.  Both quarterbacks Greyson Lambert and Brice Ramsey saw action under center, and freshman wide receiver Terry Godwin ran the Wildcat several times, including taking a direct snap 28 yards to the house.

This week, Georgia travels to Auburn for the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.

Movers

Fell Out: #19 Ole Miss, #20 Toledo, #25 Texas A&M

Newcomers: #22 Navy, #23 Wisconsin, #24 Northwestern

Overrated

#11 Florida.  Yes, they destroyed UGA.  However, they needed a late field goal to beat Vanderbilt, their beatdown of Ole Miss doesn’t look as good as it once did, and their close loss to LSU has lost some luster due to the Tigers’ performance against Alabama.

The Gators will probably beat South Carolina and FAU, but they could end their season on a three game losing streak to FSU, SECCG (Alabama), and their bowl game.

Underrated

#15 Michigan.  The Wolverines will be thanking Nebraska all week for knocking off Michigan State.  If Ohio State beats Sparty, and if Michigan is able to take care of business against Indiana and Nebraska, the game at the Big House November 28th would see the winner go to the Big 10 Championship Game.

The Wolverines are talented enough to accomplish all of the above.

This Week’s Top 25 Matchups

#3 Alabama at #20 Mississippi State

#25 Memphis at #16 Houston

#12 Oklahoma at #4 Baylor

Upset Alert

Last week I incorrectly picked Indiana to knock off Iowa.  It looks like Iowa is just going to keep winning all the way to Indianapolis.

This week, I like the Oklahoma Sooners going into Waco and knocking off the Baylor Bears.
