Georgia Football: Georgia’s College Football Playoff Case, UGA Climbs In The Rankings, and More! – Daily Dose of Dawg
Georgia’s College Football Playoff Chances
Let me start off by saying that I think Georgia’s chances are slim to none, but crazier things have happened in college football, i.e. 2007. I think you can go ahead and lock in Florida State, the Pac-12 winner, and the Big 12 winner, so for that last spot, I think it will be between the SEC and the Big 10. If you’re a Georgia fan, you’re really just hoping everybody in the top-14 starts losing, but really you need Ohio State and Nebraska to both lose one. Then, I think you’re hoping Alabama wins out, Mississippi State collects two losses, and that you beat a 1-loss Alabama in the SEC Championship (yes I know, Missouri still has to lose a game, but if they’re really able to beat Texas A&M, Tennessee, and Arkansas, I’ll eat my own hand). At this point, all the top SEC teams and all the top Big 10 teams have two losses, and with Georgia having just won the SEC Championship, they’d have a very good case. I know their losses are awful, but it would be hard to leave them out fresh off an SEC Championship win if they had the same amount of losses as all the other top SEC and Big 10 teams.
Campus Insiders believes that if UGA just wins out, they’ll be in. Video here.
College Football Playoff Rankings Announced
Last night, the third ever College Football Playoff rankings were announced, and Georgia came in at #15.
Here are the complete rankings:
If you’re a Georgia fan, you are VERY pleased about being at #15. If Georgia is going to make any more significant moves, though, it probably won’t happen until after next week. The farthest they can really move up if they beat Auburn is #13 because not enough 2-loss teams in front of them really have a good shot at losing. If Ohio State loses to Minnesota, and Georgia really looks strong beating Auburn, I could see them jumping the Buckeyes, however.
