imageGeorgia football holds top spot in Week 8 AP Poll Top 25 rankings as Bulldogs enter off week

Georgia football did what No. 1 teams should do against teams like Vanderbilt. The Bulldogs rolled to a 55-0 win over the Commodores. It marked Georgia’s seventh-straight win to start the season.

    Moving TN to #3 is a heady move. Their pass defense is lacking. Their pass offense is , however, near the top. Bama same. Bama came back from being down double digits but lost on that errant 50-yd FG, and, because, as had been the case all night, they could not stop TN from immediately moving up field into FG range and voila..end of game, as time had run out on the clock.

    UGA will need to contain TN's obsessive passing game and fast play tempo. A must. TN, as a team, is now supercharged to take on UGA. They smell the SEC East championship. And, of course, UGA must beat Florida and KY. I don't know who can topple TN prior to their meeting Georgia.

    Interesting times ahead.

    I agree with you on your assessment of Alabama’s performance, and I would have to add the penalties as a factor in their loss. A total of 17 penalties for 130 yards and several first downs when the Tenn offense should have been headed for the sideline. Without the muffed punt, and just a normal number of penalties Alabama could have controlled the second half and won the game. Go Dawgs!

    Interesting season ahead for sure.



    Just guessing but UT Martin and Kentucky have the best chance to stop Tennessee before Georgia.

    How good their chances are has to be determined on the field of play, but I wouldn't rule out Kentucky. They are tough and physical and they play defense.

    It's not that Tennessee isn't good and it's not that they're not dangerous. Alabama shot themselves in the foot over and over, and seemed to have forgotten the fundamentals of defense as well as the fundamentals of disciplined football. That takes nothing away from Tennessee's victory, but it should be taken into account along with Alabama's near losses to two teams from the Lone Star State.

    Go, Dawgs!
