Georgia Overview

The Dawgs righted the ship against Kentucky, defeating the Wildcats 42-13 that saw big days from seniors Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.

We now turn our attention to Georgia Tech and some Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate.

Movers

Fell Out: #19 Michigan, #24 West Virginia, #25 NC State

Newcomers: #23 Northwestern, #24 Virginia Tech, #25 Boise State

Overrated

#2 Miami

We didn’t learn too much about any team this past cupcake weekend, but once again Miami let a team hang around longer than it should. I don’t believe they’re going to have what it takes to beat Clemson in the ACC Championship.

Underrated

#23 Northwestern

The Wildcats are helping Wisconsin out a lot right now by hitting their stride and putting together a really strong 2017 season.

This Week’s Top 25 Matchups

#22 USF at #13 UCF

#1 Alabama at #6 Auburn

#9 Notre Dame at #20 Stanford

#14 Washington State at #15 Washington

Upset Alert

Last week, I incorrectly predicted Michigan to knock off Wisconsin.

This rivalry weekend, I’m taking Washington State over Washington in the Apple Cup.
