Georgia ranked No. 5 in AP Poll heading into rivalry game against Georgia Tech

Georgia picked up another win on Saturday, blasting UMass 66-27. Heading into the final game of the regular season the Bulldogs are ranked No. 5 in the Week 13 AP Poll as they prepare to take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Georgia is also ranked No. 5 in the Coaches Poll and No. 5 in the College Football Playoff rankings. The new rankings come out on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs scored season-best 66 points on Saturday, as a number of players shined. Freshman quarterback Justin Fields led the team in passing and rushing. The 66 points and 701 yards of total offense were the most in the Kirby Smart era. While the defense was less than stellar, the Georgia offense was more than good enough to account for that.

The rest of the top 4 remains unchanged, as No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson, No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 4 Michigan all won on Saturday, though Michigan struggled in its 31-20 win over Indiana. The Wolverines take on No. 10 Ohio State this week in a game that will determine who wins the Big Ten East. Alabama takes on rival Auburn, and Clemson hosts in-state rival South Carolina on Saturday.

As for the rest of the SEC, there are six teams ranked. LSU comes in at No. 8, Florida is No. 13, Kentucky sits at No. 17 and Mississippi State rounds things out at No. 22. LSU takes on Texas A&M on Saturday, while the other three teams take on in-state rivals. Florida plays Florida State, Kentucky faces off against Louisville and Mississippi State goes up against hated rival Ole Miss on Thursday in the Egg Bowl.

The Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets meet on Saturday in Sanford Stadium at 12 p.m. ET. The game will air on the SEC Network and can also be heard on the radio on WSB 95.5 FM/750 AM. Georgia Tech won the last two times these two teams have met in Athens, so Georgia will be looking to stop that trend. The Bulldogs did beat the Yellow Jackets last year, 38-7 in Atlanta.
