Winners and Losers from Georgia’s win over Auburn

Winner: Georgia’s chances of beating Alabama

If Swift and Fromm continue to play and improve, Georgia might be the team best equipped to take down Alabama this year.

Loser: Fans of chaos

Part of what makes college football great are the upsets. Usually, there’s a couple of stunning upsets every season, like Purdue smashing Ohio State earlier this year, or Syracuse beating Clemson in 2017.

On Saturday though, there was none of that. Sure, Georgia fans are glad that the Bulldogs cruised to a 27-10 win over Auburn. But they’re probably not as happy about the fact that every team in the Top 10 of the College Football Playoff rankings won on Saturday. All four teams that are ranked ahead of Georgia won by at least 20 points.

The nice thing for Georgia is that it doesn’t necessarily need the teams in front of them to lose. If Georgia wins out, and thus beats Alabama in the SEC Championship, it will go to the College Football Playoff. But the sport is a lot more enjoyable when Oklahoma State is able to upset No. 6 Oklahoma. Or if LSU finds a way to lose to a two-win Arkansas team. Hopefully, we see a few more of those results in the final few weeks of the season.

Winner: Terry Godwin, senior wide receiver
