Georgia drops to No. 3 in AP Poll following SEC Championship Game loss
The Georgia Bulldogs have dropped to No. 3 in the AP Poll following their 41-24 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game.
The Alabama Crimson Tide took over the top spot following the win over Georgia, moving up two spots from No. 3. Alabama received 50 first-place votes, while the remaining first-place votes went to the Michigan Wolverines (9) and the Cincinnati Bearcats (3).
Michigan remains in second place and Cincinnati remains in fourth place. Notre Dame (5) and Baylor (6) are just outside the top four.
Georgia now awaits their post-season fate, which will be revealed at 12:15pm ET today on ESPN. The Bulldogs are expected to be selected to a College Football Playoff Semifinal game where they will likely square off with Michigan.
As the top-ranked team, Alabama will get their choice of playoff semifinal locations between the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic in Arlington, Texas, and the Capital One Orange Bowl in Miami Gardens, Fla. The Crimson Tide will probably pick the Cotton Bowl and should face off against Cincinnati.
