2. Georgia Bulldogs

Record: 1-1 (1-0)

Previous Ranking: 4 (Trend: UP)

Last Week: Bye

This Week: vs. North Texas

Next Week: vs. LSU

Beat LSU, and Georgia is almost assured to be in the SEC title game.

As we said last week, Georgia really doesn’t have anything in terms of a challenge on their schedule after they play LSU. They do have a “home” game against Florida in Jacksonville that could pose some issues, but that’s looking a little be easier today than it did two weeks ago.

The two questions for Georgia are simply “Can they beat LSU?” and “If they beat LSU, can they keep their focus for the rest of the season?” We’ll see if the second question is relevant a week from Saturday.
