Georgia Overview

Georgia shut up Mississippi State, winning 31-3. The defense is legit, and Jake Fromm is asking some serious questions.

Movers

Fell Out: #12 Florida State, #24 Oregon

Newcomers: #22 Notre Dame, #23 West Virginia

Overrated

#5 USC

The Trojans are not going to make the college football playoff. There. I said it. Darnold has an interception issue, and the Pac 12 isn’t strong enough to carry a less than worthy champion.

Underrated

N.C. State

They should be ranked. Period.

#16 USC at #16 Washington State

#24 Mississippi State at #13 Auburn

#2 Clemson at #12 Virginia Tech

Upset Alert

Last week, I finally had a loser in Arizona.

This week, I’m taking Rutgers vs. Ohio State…

Kidding. East Carolina will beat South Florida.
