Georgia Overview

Georgia stumbled in the fourth, falling to Tech 28-27.  We now await our bowl berth, which could easily be against Mark Richt and the Miami Hurricanes.

Movers

Fell Out: #18 Houston, #20 Boise State, #21 Utah, #22 Texas A&M, #23 Washington State, #24 Tennessee

Newcomers: #17 Stanford, #19 Virginia Tech, #20 Navy, #22 Iowa, #24 South Florida, #24 Pittsburgh

Overrated

#15 Florida

Florida got stomped by Florida State and only dropped two spots.  Alabama is going to beat them by at least three touchdowns, and then they’ll most likely get run over in their bowl again.  Sorry, am I being too harsh on the Gators? …Nah.

Underrated

#5 Michigan

They are ranked appropriately, but after Saturday, there really is no separating Ohio State and Michigan.  If the playoff were strictly just the top four teams, Michigan would be in.

This Week’s Top 25 Matchups

#9 Colorado vs. #4 Washington

#11 Oklahoma State vs. #7 Oklahoma

#1 Alabama vs. #15 Florida

#8 Penn State vs. #6 Wisconsin

Upset Alert

Last week, I correctly picked Vandy to knock off Tennessee.

This week, I’m taking Penn State to do the same against Wisconsin.
