Georgia football was the only correct answer to put on the top of the AP Top 25 Poll after the chaos that Week 2 brought to the college football world. The Dawgs were the only team in the top 10 to hold an opponent scoreless and did it dominantly.
Of the 63 votes, 53 picked Georiga to be No.1 in the country, and thank goodness the voters got it right. Georgia also sits atop the Coaches Poll after Week 2.
There is nothing quite like seeing the Dawgs sitting at No.1 in the country, and while it does put a larger target on Georgia’s back, it should make them work harder.
No one looked better than Georgia in weeks 1 and 2, so it’s about time the Dawgs got their overdue No.1 ranking. After winning a national championship, you’d think the Dawgs would be No.1, but they had to earn it, which they quickly did.
Georgia football is now No.1 in the country after its second straight blowout.
Alabama dropped to No.2 in the poll after almost falling to an unranked Texas team. The Tide still received nine first-place votes because of who they are, but still, Georgia finally got what they deserved. Ohio State remains at the No. 3 spot and received one first-place vote.
Even though the Buckeyes scored more points than Georgia, they gave up 12 to Arkansas State, so No.3 is a perfect spot for them.
This Week 2 of college football brought chaos and reminded us all why it’s such a fantastic sport. It also reminded us why college is better than the NFL. When upsets happen, and close games make top teams feel a little more human-like — it is why we love the sport.
Three of the top 10 teams fell in Week 2 as Texas A&M, Notre Dame and Baylor all fell to their opponents. The Aggies and Irish fell to Sun Belt teams as App State struck again, and Marshall had another miracle game. Notre Dame is no longer in the top 25 as they dropped from No. 8 to being unranked, which has to be one of the biggest drops ever.
Texas A&M fell 18 spots to No. 24, Pitt fell six spots after losing to Texas, Flordia fell six spots after losing to Kentucky, and Baylor dropped eight places after BYU beat them.
However, the SEC does see four in the top 10 now, as Arkansas and Kentucky squeaked in after both getting SEC victories. The Hogs hung 50 on South Carolina to move up six spots to No.10, and the Wildcats beat Florida to move up 11 spots to No. 9.
Tennessee is the seventh SEC team in the poll as the Vols jumped nine spots to No.15 after sticking it to Pitt in overtime. It was a decent week in the SEC with the Dawgs taking control.
It was truly an incredible weekend of college football, which produced a love of movement on the AP Top 25 Poll. Thank goodness the Dawgs got the ranking they deserved because it was past time to give them their credit.
