Athlon Sports released its Top 25 college football rankings on Monday.
Not surprisingly, UGA was ranked very high.
Even more unsurprisingly, UGA was slotted in the same exact position that the Bulldogs seemed to be ranked in every Way-Too-Early Top 25 – at the No. 3 spot, trailing only Clemson and Alabama.
Back to Athlon: They predicted UGA as SEC East champions, along with Alabama coming out of the SEC West. They have Alabama also winning both the SEC Championship and national title.
Hey, that’s just one publication’s opinion.
UGA will have its most talented-loaded team under Kirby Smart for the 2019 season. If the Bulldogs go undefeated during the regular season, they could still make the College Playoff even if they lost to Alabama.
The Bulldogs open the season in around 100 days against Vanderbilt on Aug. 31.
