As the season got underway, the first week of the College Football season didn’t disappoint. The #1 team, Alabama defeated Louisville 51-14, #2 Clemson defeated Furman 48-7, #3 Georgia defeated Austin Peay 45-0, and #9 Auburn defeated #6 Washington 21-16. With the new rankings dropping at 2pm EST, the news came out and not many were surprised with the changes in top 10.
The main changes were Auburn, Washington, Miami and Penn State. Miami lost to LSU, Penn State was on upset alert late in their game and beat App State in OT, and Washington fell short in Atlanta.
The Top 25 came out and Georgia remained in the same spot (#3). With a big matchup with the South Carolina Gamecocks coming up this Saturday, the Nation has put the Bulldogs as the team with the biggest possibility of an upset, as they are only favored by 9.5 points. With the Bulldogs dodging a bullet, they avoided a night game on the road. Kickoff is set for 3:30.
In the next published article, we will focus on the Dawg’s task at hand as they take on the Gamecocks and give our game-day predictions.
