Georgia Overview

Georgia took care of business as the number on team in the nation, dispatching of Kentucky by the score of 30-16.

The Bulldogs once again find themselves ranked #1 in both the AP and Coaches Polls, and the Dawgs picked up every single first place vote in both polls as well.

UGA has a bye week ahead of the Cocktail Party against unranked Florida.

Movers

Fell Out: #17 Arkansas, #18 Arizona State, #19 BYU, #20 Florida, #25 Texas

Newcomers: #19 Auburn, #20 Baylor, #23 Pitt, #24 UTSA, #25 Purdue

Overrated

#7 Penn State. The Nittany Lions have played two ranked teams thus far – a home victory over Auburn and a road loss against Iowa. Penn State will beat Illinois this week, but three of their last five games are against Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State. The season could go off the rails in a hurry for Penn State.

Underrated

#18 NC State. The Wolfpack beat Boston College 33-7 to improve to 5-1. NC State could end up being the ACC champion by the time the season is over, with their only game remaining against a ranked opponent being against Wake Forest.

None

Upset Alert

Iowa State dodged the upset bug against Kansas State last week.

This week, I’m taking Clemson, who is somehow a +3 ½ underdog against Pitt.

GO DAWGS!!!
