Georgia Overview

The second ranked Georgia Bulldogs defeated the then-ranked #8 Arkansas Razorbacks 37-0 in a game that saw the Dawg run game get right. This was the second consecutive league shutout for the Dawgs, a feat last seen in 1980.

Georgia remained at #2 but now has nine first place votes. It’s clear that Alabama and Georgia are the top two teams in the nation at the moment, and I’m certainly fine with Bama remaining #1 right now.

Georgia travels to #18 Auburn in yet another ranked showdown.

Movers

Fell Out: #15 Texas A&M, #18 Fresno State, #20 UCLA, #21 Baylor, #25 Clemson

Newcomers: #16 Kentucky, #21 Texas, #22 Arizona State, #24 SMU, #25 San Diego State

Overrated

#8 Oregon. Outside of the upset at Ohio State, the Ducks have not looked the part of a top ten team. They have played several games that should not have been close if they were truly a contender, and the loss to Stanford should have seen them drop outside of the top ten.

Underrated

#21 Texas. This pains me to put the Longhorns here, because I am a firm believer that they are not back. However, Arkansas is a good team, and Texas is better than their ranking reflects. I will be cheering them on reluctantly this weekend against Oklahoma, as the Sooners are overdue for a loss, but I will continue to laugh at the Longhorns about not being back should they lose.

Upset Alert

We are not going to talk about last week. Good game, Iowa.

This week, I’m taking Texas +3 ½ to knock off Oklahoma in the Red River Showdown.

GO DAWGS!!!
