Georgia first in College Football Playoff rankings for third consecutive week
The Georgia Bulldogs have remained in first-place for the third consecutive week in the latest College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday evening.
Georgia held onto the top spot after defeating the Kentucky Wildcats on the road in Lexington, 16-6. The remainder of the top four also stayed the same with Ohio State second, Michigan third, and TCU fourth.
Tennessee, which lost at South Carolina 63-38, fell from fifth to 10th. Four teams moved up one spot in the latest rankings — LSU (5), USC (6), Alabama (7), and Clemson (8).
