Georgia Overview

The Bulldogs’ game against Missouri was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak with the Tigers. We will hopefully be able to play Mississippi State this weekend, although they are dealing with their own COVID issues.

Movers

Fell Out: #19 SMU

Newcomers: #23 Tulsa

Overrated

#12 Miami. The Hurricanes squeaked by Virginia Tech on Saturday, winning 25-24 as quarterback D’Eriq King has drastically improved their offense. However, Miami has been living dangerously in recent weeks, and playing these types of close games will eventually come back to bite them.

Underrated

#3 Ohio State. The Buckeyes are of course the class of the Big 10, but they may be the best team in the nation. Quarterback Justin Fields is playing at an even higher level than in 2019, and Ohio State will have no trouble running the table and making the playoff.

Upset Alert

Last week, I incorrectly predicted Louisville going on the road to beat Virginia.

This week, I am taking Liberty, a three-point underdog, to go on the road to Raleigh and beat NC State.
