TRENDING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION
Years since Georgia lost three games in a row. The Bulldogs had a four-game losing streak in 2010, when they fell to 1-4.
Number of two-game losing streaks since the 2011 season. The Bulldogs lost two straight to open 2011, and two straight in 2013, and now two straight this year.
Seasons it’s been since Georgia was unranked. The Bulldogs fell out of the AP and coaches poll at the end of the 2013 season, but were ranked all of last season. Back in 2013 the Bulldogs spent six of the final nine weeks unranked, after being ranked in the top 15 the first eight weeks. (The loss at Vanderbilt knocked them out.)
