Georgia lost 44-28 to Florida.

Georgia football tumbles out of top-10 after loss to Florida

For the first time all season, the Georgia Bulldogs find themselves outside of the top-10 in both the AP and Coaches Poll. The Bulldogs fell to No. 11 in this week’s Coaches Poll Top-25 and No. 12 in the AP Poll.

Georgia was previously No. 5 in both polls. No. 1 Clemson also lost this week, giving Alabama the top spot in the polls. Notre Dame comes in at No. 2, Ohio State is No. 3, Clemson No. 4, Texas A&M takes the No. 5 spot and Florida moves to No. 6 after the 44-28 win over Georgia.

The loss is the second of the season for the Bulldogs, after dropping a game in October to Alabama. The loss to Florida also makes it very difficult to see the Bulldogs getting back to Atlanta for the SEC championship game this season.

Georgia has four games left in the season with all of them coming against teams with losing records. Georgia should have a chance to climb back up in the polls as it will be favored in each of its final four games.

But the Bulldogs have some major question marks at both quarterback and in the secondary. The Florida game made that very clear, as Georgia threw for just 129 yards while giving up 474 passing yards to Florida’s Kyle Trask.

After the loss, Kirby Smart made it clear that the Bulldogs have to improve coming out of the loss.

“We’ve got to get better and that starts with me,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. “I’ve got to do a better job and we’re going to do a better job but I’m not frustrated with the plight we’re in. We made our bed.”

Georgia takes on Missouri this weekend in Columbia, Mo. The Bulldogs and Tigers will play on ESPN at 12 p.m. ET. You can see the full Week 10 Coaches Poll and AP Poll below.
