Simulated BCS rankings, Week 7: Georgia falls 6 spots to No. 10

The Dawgs are now considered a national championship longshot after being blown out by South Carolina.

While not even mathematically eliminated from the SEC Eastern Division race, the University of Georgia's national title hopes were dealt a near-lethal blow on Saturday when they were absolutely dismantled by rival South Carolina in Columbia. The Dawgs are now on the far, far outside of the national title picture looking in, as SB Nation's BCS simulations suggest:

10. Georgia - The Bulldogs face a much tougher trek to the BCS title game as a one-loss SEC champ. Because its one loss was a huge blowout, Georgia needs a lot of help just to get into the SEC title game, as it's unlikely to win a three-way tiebreaker for the East title against Florida and South Carolina.

It's worth noting that UGA slipped into the SEC Championship's back door after a loss to South Carolina last year - and the Gamecocks still have to play LSU and Florida in consecutive weeks - but they'd need to finish perfect, hope that both the Cocks and Gators take two losses each and beat an undefeated Alabama in Atlanta to be considered a title game participant.
