Georgia got back on the right track, running over Auburn 42-10 behind the first 300+ yard rushing game of the year.
Georgia moved back into the top spot in the AP Poll, picking up 32 out of a possible 63 first place votes. The Dawgs welcome Vanderbilt to Athens this weekend.
Fell Out: #16 BYU, #21 Washington, #25 LSU
Newcomers: #22 Texas, #24 Illinois, #25 James Madison
#9 Ole Miss. The Rebels are probably appropriately ranked, but they were in a dog fight for a while against Vanderbilt and allowed the Commodores to score 28 points on their defense.
#5 Michigan. I wouldn’t necessarily call the Wolverines underrated in the traditional sense, but I find it odd that Michigan handled its business against Indiana and still dropped in the polls. The Wolverines are a very good football team and they will have a chance at a statement win this weekend against #10 Penn State.

#7 Southern California at #20 Utah
Southern California is a three-and-a-half-point underdog to Utah this week. The Trojans may not be a perfect team, but I believe they will go on the road and get the victory/
