Georgia football podcast: UGA can put pressure on CFP committee with a win vs. Clemson

Beginning of the show: The College Football Playoff selection committee has shown a hesitation to include two SEC teams in the Playoff. The committee selected Alabama along with UGA in 2017, but rejected UGA as an at-large entry in 2018 and passed on Texas A&M this past season.

However, if UGA can knock off perennial championship contender Clemson to open the upcoming season, the Bulldogs could make a strong early case for Playoff inclusion whether they win the SEC or not.

I’ll discuss more on that topic on today’ show.
