Georgia moves up to sixth in Week 6 college football polls

By Kevin Kelley -

After their thrilling 44-41 victory over then No. 6 LSU, the Georgia Bulldogs have moved up to No. 6 in both the AP Poll and the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll for Week 6.

Georgia was previously ranked 9th in the AP Poll and 10th in the Coaches Poll. The Bulldogs jumped over Florida State and Louisville in both polls and Texas A&M in the Coaches.

The Top 5 in both polls remained the same. In the AP, Alabama is No. 1, followed by Oregon, Clemson, Ohio State, and Stanford. The Coaches Poll is the same except for Ohio State is third and Clemson is fourth.

Notre Dame, which lost to Oklahoma, and Wisconsin, which lost to Ohio State, fell out of both polls. Ole Miss fell out of the Coaches Poll and dropped to 24th in the AP after being shut out by Alabama 25-0.

Teams entering the polls this week include Arizona State (22 AP, 24 Coaches), Maryland (25 AP), Northern Illinois (23 Coaches), and Nebraska (25 Coaches).

As a result of their loss at Georgia, the LSU Tigers fell five spots to No. 11 in the Coaches Poll and four spots to No. 10 in the AP. Oklahoma State, which lost to West Virginia, dropped the most of any team, falling 10 spots to 21st in the AP and nine spots to 20th in the Coaches.

It sue seems Alabama and Oregon are in a class by themselves, with a big gap back to the third team. So the current BCS system will be fine this year. Everyone but me seems to like next year’s 4-team playoff. If it were in effect this year I think there would be a huge fight over the 3rd and 4th teams and will be most years.

WHO does ALABAMA play to warrant a top seed in the country??? Georgia has played three top ten teams this season. Alabama?LSU is the only top 25 team left on their schedule!!!

Don’t worry angry Dawg, if you beat Florida then you’ll have your chance at Bama in the SEC CG. Sometimes I worry if we’re doing well. Then I read a random angry comment and I realize that the Tide Rolls! Also, it doesn’t help your argument about a tough schedule if you lose to Clemson.

TENNESSEE has played Oregon and Florida!! NOW come GEORGIA/SOUTH CAROLINA/ALABAMA/MISSOURI/VANDY/WHO plays a harder schedule than UTENN??? Pack your bags Lannie Kiffin/this is your last year at USC???

Props to Aaron Murray and the Dogs, out lasting the Tigers. Can either Georgia or LSU put up that many points on the Tide?
