2. Alabama Crimson Tide

Previous Ranking: 2

Staying at their No. 2 spot from last week is Alabama, as the Crimson Tide picked up a 24-10 win at home over Ole Miss. After trailing 7-3 at the end of the first quarter, Alabama would outscore the Rebels a combined 21-3 across the game’s final three frames to secure the win, as well as 18-3 in the second half alone.

Now sitting at 3-1 overall, as well as 1-0 in the SEC, Alabama will travel for SEC football action this week, as the Crimson Tide take on Mississippi State in Starkville.

1. Georgia Bulldogs

Previous Ranking: 1

Concluding this week’s update is Georgia remaining at No. 1, as the Bulldogs picked up a 49-21 win over UAB at home. A game in which Georgia never trailed, the Bulldogs would carry a 28-14 lead into halftime of the contest, as well as amass an impressive 582 yards of total offense.

Undefeated at 4-0, as well as 1-0 in the SEC, Georgia will now travel for arguably their toughest test yet this week with a road trip to Auburn.
