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).

The Bulldogs have beaten two teams that are currently in the College Football Playoff rankings. Georgia topped No. 10 Tennessee in Athens, 27-13, and crushed No. 9 Oregon, 49-3, in their season-opener in Atlanta.

The Bulldogs are also ranked number one in the latest AP Poll and USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll.
