Georgia Overview

The Dawgs fell to Alabama once again, losing in Tuscaloosa 41-24. Rather than rehashing things, let’s flip the page. We still have everything to play for this year, and we have a bye this week to fix some things before our next game against Kentucky on Halloween.

Movers

Fell Out: #15 Auburn, #18 Tennessee, #21 Louisiana

Newcomers: #22 Marshall, #23 North Carolina State, #25 Coastal Carolina

Overrated

#3 Notre Dame. Well, someone has to be ranked third, might as well be Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish are undefeated, but their latest win – a 12-7 win against Louisville – didn’t inspire much confidence. Of course, the true measuring stick will come November 7th against Clemson, but right now the Irish do not seem on the same level as the Tigers.

Underrated

#5 Ohio State. The Buckeyes were a preseason favorite to win it all, but a late start the Big Ten season has seen them fall since the preseason polls. The Big Ten finally starts this Saturday, and as much as I don’t like saying it, the Buckeyes are going to remind everyone how good they are.

Upset Alert

Last week, I went back-to-back with winners, correctly taking Arkansas and the points while seeing the Hogs win outright.

This week, I’m taking slight underdogs SMU to win at home against Cincinnati.
