  • The Bulldogs leapt up six spot in the Week 1 AP Poll, moving from No. 12 all the way up to No. 6, while also receiving two first place votes.

    The Dawgs’ six-spot jump was the second biggest upward move in the pool, behind Texas A&M who moved from No. 21 to No. 9 after their dismantling of the South Carolina Gamecocks. The Bulldogs also moved up four spots to No. 8 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

    The top four teams in the AP Poll — Florida State, Alabama, Oregon and Oklahoma — remained unchanged, with the Seminoles keeping a healthy margin in first place votes (46) as compared to the next highest number of votes (5) for Oregon.

    Georgia has an open date this week, so it’s unlikely that their position will change in either poll until the next game against South Carolina, to be played in Columbia, S.C. on Sept. 13.

    Many are looking at the Dawgs as a potential playoff team after only one week of play, something that head coach Mark Richt has been downplaying both in his weekly SEC teleconference and in an interview with ESPN.

    “We played one game and we’ve got a long way to go,” Richt said to ESPN columnist Mark Schlabach. “The old saying is true: You’re probably never as good as you think and never as bad as you think. You’re never as good as you think after a win and never as bad as you think after a loss.”
