Georgia Overview

In quite a unique game for Georgia, the Bulldogs held off Mississippi State to win 31-24. The run offense was abysmal, and the pass defense may have been worse, but Georgia has found its quarterback. J.T. Daniels threw for 401 yards and four touchdowns, and wide receiver Jermaine Burton had the fourth most yards in Georgia history with 197 and two touchdowns.

The Dawgs take on Mike Bobo and South Carolina this Saturday night.

Movers

Fell Out: #21 Liberty

Newcomers: #25 North Carolina

Overrated

#9 Oregon. Look, the Ducks are probably the best team in the Pac-12, but they aren’t one of the ten best teams in the nation. Having to hold off former coach Chip Kelly and UCLA to squeak out a three point win, Oregon could easily be 6-0 heading into the Pac-12 Championship and still not be a viable option for the Playoff.

Underrated

#14 Oklahoma. After a rocky start to the season, it appears the Sooners have put it together. The latest example of this was their 41-13 beat down of Oklahoma State in Bedlam. It appears we are headed towards another conference championship for the Sooners.

Upset Alert

Last week, I correctly had NC State taking down undefeated Liberty.

This week, I’m taking Iowa State as two point underdogs to go to Austin and beat Texas on Friday.
