After defeating the Florida Gators on Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs moved up to No. 7 in the Associated Press poll.
After scraping past Tennessee on Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs stayed at No. 5 in the USA Today coaches' poll.
The Georgia Bulldogs maintained their No. 5 ranking in this week's Associated Press Top 25 Poll, setting up a huge showdown with South Carolina next Saturday.
The Georgia Bulldogs are No. 5 in this week's SB Nation BlogPoll
The most recent USA Today Coaches' Poll ranks the Georgia Bulldogs at No. 5.
The Georgia Bulldogs held steady at No. 5 in the Week 5 AP poll.
The loss by USC to Stanford over the weekend has shaken things up at the top of the SB Nation Blogpoll. One of the teams benefiting from the upset of the Trojans is Georgia, who moves up to No. 4 in the rankings.
Georgia is one of three SEC teams in top-four, with Alabama at No. 1 and LSU at No. 2. In total there are six teams from the conference in the top-25.
The Bulldogs could be moving up to No. 3 in the poll if the team who currently occupies that spot, Oregon, is the latest squad to suffer a PAC-12 upset. The Ducks host No. 20 Arizona, who is off to a hot start with head coach Rich Rodriguez.
The only other team from the state receiving votes was Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets have started the season with a 2-1 record.
The Georgia Bulldogs' downfall this season might be the conference they play in. Despite being ranked fifth in SB Nation's latest simulated BCS standings, they are rated the third best team in the SEC.
That is because Alabama and LSU are ranked first and second, respectively, in this week's poll.
In fact, the top-five teams come from only two conferences, as No. 3 Oregon and No. 4 Stanford are both members of the PAC-12.
As for the other SEC teams in the rankings, South Carolina checks in at No. 7, Florida is at No. 11 and Mississippi State is at No. 24.
Luckily for the Bulldogs, only two of those five other SEC teams are on their regular season schedule. Georgia plays at South Carolina on Oct. 6 and hosts Florida on Oct. 27.
The Georgia Bulldogs moved up one spot in the latest USA Today Coaches' Poll after their 56-20 victory against Florida Atlantic on Saturday. What also helped the Bulldogs move up in the rankings is that the now former No. 3 USC Trojans fell to No. 11 in the rankings after they lost 21-14 to the Stanford Cardinal.
The SEC is still the league that everyone is chasing as the Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers are at the top of the polls. The Crimson Tide own 54 of the 49 first place votes, and the Tigers have the other five. The SEC has four teams in the top 10 as the South Carolina Gamecocks are are ranked No. 8.
Here's the entire Coaches' Poll Top 25:
The Georgia Bulldogs climbed two spots in the national polls, going from No. 7 to No. 5.
After defeating Missouri in its SEC opener on Saturday, Georgia climbed up the SB Nation Blogpoll to fifth in the rankings. The impressive win gives the nation's best conference three of the top fives teams, as Alabama and LSU check in at one and two.
Georgia Tech also got some consideration for the top-25, as it was included among the teams receiving votes.
The Bulldogs should undoubtedly stay among the top teams after their game against Florida Atlantic, while Georgia Tech could find its way into the rankings if it can knock off Virginia.
The Georgia Southern Eagles fell from third to 10th in the FCS rankings after losing to The Citadel, 23-21.
The Eagles are one of the main contenders to win the FCS National Championship, but suffered an early defeat to the previously unranked Bulldogs. After beating the Eagles, The Citadel moved to No. 23.
Two other teams from the Southern Conference are also ranked in the top 25 of the FCS Coaches Poll. The Appalachian State Mountaineers are seventh, while the Wofford Terriers check in at ninth.
The Eagles play Wofford on Oct. 13 in what could be a showdown between two of the top teams in the conference.
North Dakota State is No. 1 overall and looks like a strong favorite to repeat as a champion.

The latest edition of the USA Today Coaches Poll is out and the Georgia Bulldogs hold on to No. 7 spot in this week's rankings. The top of the poll looks the same as the AP rankings with Alabama occupying the top spot. However, the coaches moved LSU past USC putting the Tigers in the No. 2 position. The Trojans check in at No. 3 and are followed by Oregon, Oklahoma and Florida State.
Arkansas plummets all the way to No. 21 after the Razorbacks' upset loss to Louisiana Monroe. Wisconsin and Nebraska fall nine and 10 spots respectively after losses while Oklahoma State moves completely out of the poll.
Here's the full top 25 of this week's coaches' poll:
Georgia holds steady at No. 7 in this week's AP Top 25 poll. There was no movement at the top with Alabama holding onto the top spot and followed by USC and LSU. Oregon is No. 4, while Florida State and Oklahoma are tied for the fifth spot. South Carolina comes in at No. 8, one spot behind the Bulldogs.
Arkansas falls completely out of the poll after Saturday's upset loss to Louisiana Monroe. Oklahoma State, Wisconsin and Nebraska also fall out after suffering losses on Saturday.
Georgia Tech received votes for the second week in a row but remains on the outside looking in.
Here is this week's full top 25:
The Georgia Bulldogs are ranked No. 8 in the first SBNation BlogPoll. The Bulldogs are slightly behind the Oklahoma Sooners at No. 7. At the top of the BlogPoll is SEC foe Alabama Crimson Tide, followed by the USC Trojans, LSU Tigers, Oregon Ducks and Florida St. Seminoles in the top five.
Georgia's second opponent, the Missouri Tigers did receive votes in the BlogPoll, but not enough to crack the top 25. Other SEC teams that reached the top 25 in the BlogPoll include the Arkansas Razorbacks at No. 11 and the South Carolina Gamecocks at No. 12.
The Bulldogs and the Tigers play each other on Saturday at 7:45 p.m at Missouri. The game will be televised on ESPN 2.
The USA Today Coaches Poll felt the same way about the Georgia Bulldogs as the AP poll did as Georgia was leap frogged by the Florida St. Seminoles who were going up against a much inferior opponent from the FCS by defeating Murray State 69-3. While Georgia played and defeated the Buffalo Bulls out of the MAC by a score of 45-23.
So the reason for the jump may have been due to looking at the scoreboard. Georgia has a chance this week to make some noise in the polls as they play a quality SEC opponent in the Missouri Tigers who received 16 votes in the coaches poll.
Here is the USA Today's Coaches Poll:
|Rank||Team (first-place votes)||Record||Points||Last week|

In the latest AP college football top 25 poll, the Georgia Bulldogs fell one spot to No. 7 in the rankings. Georgia is fresh off a 45-23 victory over the Buffalo Bulls, but they were jumped over by Florida State who obliterated FCS-opponent Murray State, 69-3.
Georgia's Week 2 opponent is the Missouri Tigers, who are on the outside looking in and have earned seven points in the poll.
