Georgia football reaction: Bulldogs face uncertainty in 2013 rankings

Scott Cunningham

The Dawgs may need to jump over several conference foes to establish themselves in the top 10, but they'll have a chance to do so early in their schedule.

The Georgia Bulldogs had an undeniably successful season in 2012. They went 11-1 in the regular season and won the Capital One Bowl over Nebraska, but their loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game left a little bit of a bitter taste in everyone's mouths. The loss kept them out of the BCS Championship Game, and ultimately kept them out of the BCS entirely.

With the offseason upon Georgia, Dawg Sports has turned their attention to the 2013 season, and specifically where the team will begin the season in the rankings. Despite beating the Huskers 45-31 on New Years Day, there are concerns that Georgia will have to leapfrog over several other SEC teams if they want to make another run at the national championship.

The Dawgs start the season with a trip to Clemson to face the Tigers, and then return home to face South Carolina the next week. Both of those teams figure to be highly ranked to start the season, and provide a good opportunity for Georgia to firmly establish themselves as a top ten team.
