The Georgia Bulldogs moved up a spot in the most recent USA Today Coaches' Poll, going from No. 6 to No. 5. Georgia disposed of Vanderbilt Saturday with a 48-3 route. That gives the Dawgs momentum going into next week's game against Tennessee.

Georgia is now 4-0 and 2-0 in SEC play.

Also worth noting from the poll, the Oregon Ducks jumped the LSU Tigers, leaping into the No. 2 spot after topping the Arizona Wildcats over the weekend. The Kansas State Wildcats broke the top 10 after an upset victory over the Oklahoma Sooners.

The Wildcats, ranked No. 13 headed into the weekend showdown with No. 5 Oklahoma, stunned the Sooners in Norman, and jump five spots to No. 8 in this week's poll.
