Georgia Overview

The kid did it.  Jacob Eason led the Dawgs to a great comeback win, beating Missouri 28-27.  Eason completed 29 of 55 passes for 308 yards and three touchdowns, and Isaiah McKenzie hauled in ten catches for 122 yards and two touchdowns.

Georgia has an even bigger test next week, as they head to Oxford, MS to face the Ole Miss Rebels.

Movers

Fell Out: #13 Iowa, #18 Notre Dame, #22 Oregon

Newcomers: #20 Nebraska, #22 San Diego St., #24 Utah

Overrated

#15 Miami

Really happy for Mark Richt for getting his Hurricanes off to a great start.  I just don’t see them sustaining such a high ranking in the polls all year.  They have a bye this week, but if they survive a trip to Bobby Dodd, their first loss should come against Florida State the following week.

Underrated

#8 Michigan State

Every year, we all sleep on Michigan State.  They proved against Notre Dame that they are once again one of the elite teams in the country.

This Week’s Top 25 Matchups

#11 Wisconsin vs. #8 Michigan St.

#12 Georgia vs. #23 Ole Miss

#19 Florida vs. #14 Tennessee

#17 Arkansas vs. #10 Texas A&M

Upset Alert

Well, I was way off with Cincinnati and USC.  Should have picked North Dakota State.  C’est la vie.

This week, I’ve got Auburn pulling off the upset at home against LSU.
