Georgia remains at No. 3 in Coaches Poll

The Georgia Bulldogs picked up another win on Saturday, as they slogged through a 43-29 win over the Missouri Tigers. Because of that the Bulldogs came in at No. 3 in the Coaches Poll ahead of week 5.

Georgia’s offense never got into a rhythm on Saturday but the Bulldogs were never threatened by Missouri thanks to a defensive and special teams touchdowns. Alabama once again came in at No. 1, as the Crimson Tide roughed up Texas A&M 45-23. Clemson came in at No. 2, as the Tigers strolled to an easy 49-21 win over Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Saturday. Ohio State came in at No. 4 and Oklahoma is again No. 5.

There are 6 SEC teams ranked this week, with four landing in the top 10. LSU, who Georgia plays on Oct. 13, is at No. 6 and Auburn is at No. 10. Mississippi State dropped to No. 19 following a 28-7 loss to Kentucky who is now ranked No. 17. Texas A&M fell out of the rankings after its loss to Alabama.

This week Georgia takes on Tennessee, who lost 47-21 to Florida on Saturday night in a very sloppy game for the Volunteers. Tennessee has now lost 10 straight SEC games and must face a Georgia team that beat them 41-0 in Neyland Stadium last year. Georgia will have to look impressive given that Ohio State takes on No. 9 Penn State and No. 7 Stanford and No. 8 Notre Dame play each other next week, which means that two teams will get a win over another top-10 team, and thus have a more impressive resume.

Georgia and Tennessee kickoff at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. The game can be seen on CBS.
