Georgia Overview

UGA had a bye this week, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

It’s Florida hate week as the Dawgs prepare for the Cocktail Party on Saturday.

Movers

Fell Out: #11 Houston, #17 Arkansas, #23 Ole Miss

Newcomers: #23 Colorado, #24 Penn State, #25 Virginia Tech

Overrated

#7 Nebraska

The Cornhuskers are off to a 7-0 start after ending last season 5-7.  However, their next two opponents are Wisconsin and Ohio State.  I’d be surprised if Nebraska wins even one of those games.

Underrated

#17 Utah

The Utes are flying under the radar at #17.  They are probably the Pac-12’s second best team, and they have a legit shot at knocking off Washington this weekend.

This Week’s Top 25 Matchups

#4 Washington vs. #17 Utah

#7 Nebraska vs. #11 Wisconsin

#3 Clemson vs. #12 Florida State

Upset Alert

Last week, Utah held off an upset bid from UCLA.

This week, I’m taking Utah to upset Washington at home and creating some chaos.
