It was more of a victory lap than a competitive football game Saturday night between the hedges as Georgia stopped upstart Mississippi State 31-3 in front of a raucous Sanford Stadium crowd. As a result, coach Kirby Smart's crew jumped four spots all the way up to No. 7 in the latest edition of the AP Top 25.
TCU also made waves in the latest poll, moving into the top 10 at No. nine following its 44-31 win over Oklahoma State. Florida State dropped from No. 12 to totally out of the latest edition of the poll, after it fell to 0-2 following a home loss to NC State. Oregon fell from its No. 24 spot after losing to Arizona State.
Also of note: Florida State finds itself out of the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2011.
After a sizzling performance Saturday night, Georgia went surging up the polls to No. 8 in the new Coaches Poll following a resounding 31-3 victory over Mississippi State in Athens.
Alabama is still holding strong atop the top 25 after destroying Vanderbilt 59-0 in Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday afternoon in a game that wasn't even as close as the score indicates. Meanwhile, Florida State took the biggest tumble after falling 27-21 to NC State in Tallahassee.
