Georgia Overview

With much of the stadium clad in pink to honor Arkansas State head coach Blake Anderson’s late wife, Wendy, the Georgia Bulldogs shut out the Arkansas State Red Wolves 55-0.

All five scholarship running backs found the end zone, and true freshman Dominick Blaylock led the team in receiving after fellow wide receiver Tyler Simmons left the game with an injury.

The Dawgs controlled the game from the start, something they failed to do against Murray State and something that was stated in last week’s Polls post that was needed.

Georgia remains number three in the polls and will take on #7 Notre Dame in Athens with College Gameday in the Classic City.


Fell Out: #19 Michigan State, #21 Maryland, #24 USC

Newcomers: #21 Maryland, #24 USC, #25 Virginia


The Pac-12. Six of the 25 teams ranked in the latest polls are from the Pac-12, and that is far too many. The conference is not that strong in 2019, and Oregon’s loss to Auburn does nothing to help their perception. Once again, the left coast will be left out of the playoff.


#24 UCF. In the upset alert last week, I had Stanford knocking off UCF. Wow was I wrong. The Golden Knights routed Stanford 45-27, and I am surprised they didn’t jump more in the polls. They should be ranked above the likes of Michigan or Florida.

#11 Michigan at #13 Wisconsin

#7 Notre Dame at #3 Georgia

Upset Alert

As noted above, I was wrong about UCF. This week, I have USC knocking off Utah at home to put an even larger dent in the Pac-12’s playoff hopes.
