Georgia Overview

Georgia’s Senior Day against Vanderbilt was postponed until December 19th due to COVID-19 outbreaks with the Commodores.

#9 Georgia will take on #25 Missouri this weekend as the Dawgs look to keep their New Years Six bowl hopes alive.

Overrated

#4 Ohio State. Look, talent wise, the Buckeyes are one of the four best teams in the nation. However, their resume is not one of the four best at all. They’ve only played five games, buoyed by their win over #12 Indiana, and they have now had their game this weekend against Michigan canceled. We will see what happens in the SEC and ACC Championship Games, but the committee needs to really look at that resume.

Underrated

#19 Louisiana. The Ragin Cajuns should absolutely be ranked higher, at least higher than BYU. They are 9-1, and one of those wins are against #7 Iowa State, which is potentially keeping them out of a playoff spot if they were to win the Big 12 Championship.

This Week’s Top 25 Matchups

#9 Georgia at #25 Missouri

#17 North Carolina at #10 Miami

Upset Alert

Last week, my belief in Boston College did not pay off against Virginia.

This week, give me Oregon State at home as a three point dog to Stanford.
