No. 1 UGA steadily leads the top 5; ducks, UCLA . slip

Georgia, ranked No. 1, topped the top five unchanged in an AP college football poll on Sunday, while the rest of the 25 were swapped after eight seeded teams lost — including two big Pac 12 upsets.

For the second week in a row, the Bulldogs received all but one of the 63 first-place votes in the AP Top 25. Ohio State received the No. 2 vote for the other first-place vote.

Third Michigan, No. 4 TCU, and No. 5 Tennessee held their positions after Saturday’s wins, with only the Horned Frogs facing a real challenge.

Georgia, Ohio, Michigan, and Tennessee won 203-60 against the convention’s opponents.

Home losses by Oregon (to Washington) and UCLA (to Arizona) rocked the rest of the top ten.

The last time two top-10 Pac12 teams lost at home was during the same weekend October 2-4, 2014, when Oregon’s runners-up fell 31-24 to Arizona and defeated UCLA’s #8 team 30-28 from Utah.

Alabama climbed two spots to eighth this week after dropping to tenth place last week. Clemson advanced three places to return to the top ten in ninth, and Utah moved up to tenth.

poll points

Georgia is getting close to school enrollment.

The Bulldogs are in the top spot for the ninth time this season, matching last season’s total, when they won the national title for the first time in 41 years.

Georgia has ranked first with a total of 33 times in the school’s history, one behind Michigan at number 12 in the history of the AP poll.

The Bulldogs are in Kentucky next week and close out the regular season against Georgia Tech. Barring a big surprise, they’ll go into the SEC Championship match against LSU with 11 weeks as the best team in the country.
