Georgia cruised to a 48-6 win over the Southern Univeristy Jaguars in their tune-up before Alabama comes to Athens next weekend.
Nick Chubb once again Nick Chubbed, running for over 100 yards for the 12th straight game, tying Herschel Walker’s school record. Greyson Lambert followed up his record setting performance against South Carolina by going 9-10 for 146 yards and two touchdowns.
Several Dawgs were able to get playing time in the blowout victory over Southern, and now their sights will be firmly set on the Crimson Tide.

#2 Michigan State. It might have been premature to anoint the Spartans the second best team in the country. The Oregon victory lost a lot of luster after the Ducks were demolished by Utah, and questions still remain for their secondary. There are several teams behind the Spartans in the polls I’d take ahead of them.
#22 Michigan. Pretty much the opposite from Michigan State. The Wolverines’ loss to Utah doesn’t look as bad at all anymore, and pitching a shutout against BYU was mighty impressive. Michigan is improving every week under Jim Harbaugh and will look to carry this momentum against Maryland in primetime.
