The Georgia Bulldogs have dropped one spot to 9th in the College Football Playoff rankings for Dec. 8, 2020, the CFP announced on Tuesday.

Georgia dropped one spot even though they did not play on Saturday due to their home game against the Vanderbilt Commodores being postponed.

The Iowa State Cyclones, previously ranked No. 9, moved up two spots to No. 7, jumping both Cincinnati and Georgia. Cincinnati remains ranked in front of the Bulldogs, this week at No. 8.

Alabama is again ranked first, and the Crimson Tide are followed by Notre Dame, Clemson, Ohio State, Texas A&M, and Florida.

Georgia has no wins over teams currently ranked in the College Football Playoff Rankings. The Bulldogs fell to No. 1 Alabama, 41-24, and No. 6 Florida, 44-28, earlier this season.

The Bulldogs’ opponent on Dec. 19, the Missouri Tigers, have entered the rankings at No. 25.

The Bulldogs are currently ranked 10th in the Amway Coaches Poll and 12th in the AP Poll.
