AP Top 25 Week 11: It’s Just Georgia and Everybody Else

The Georgia Bulldogs are scary good and quite simply just freaking better than everybody else right now

NCAA Football: Missouri at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

As the calendar turns to November, the College Football season is starting to wind down, and once again, there was no shortage of upsets as Saturday provided plenty of surprises. This season certainly has a 2007 feel to it with the upsets we’ve seen from week-to-week.

The biggest ranked upsets included North Carolina over undefeated Wake Forest and Purdue (the Spoilermakers, really) over undefeated Michigan State. This means were down to four unbeaten teams left —- Georgia, Oklahoma, Cincinnati, and UTSA.

In the SEC, the Georgia Bulldogs did Georgia Bulldog things in a 43-6 win over the Missouri Tigers (but hey, you know what — Mizzou covered!). Texas A&M beat Auburn 20-3 to take over second place in the SEC West, and Alabama had to escape LSU with a 20-14 win. Meanwhile, Kentucky fell at home 45-42 to Tennessee while Arkansas clinched bowl eligibility with a 31-28 win over Mississippi State.

In these latest rankings, the Big Ten has taken the lead over the SEC for most teams ranked.
