ATLANTA – It’s the middle of the college football season, and through one-half of it, there have been major upsets, nail-biting losses and teams that have shocked the college football world with their consistently high level of play each week.
The Southeastern Conference — one of the toughest conferences to play in in college football — usually operates on the idea that each week, every team “beats up” on each other.
Through seven weeks of college football, however, two teams have emerged from their respective divisions in the SEC.
Which two teams are they?
The other is the Georgia Bulldogs, a team that lost its starting quarterback Jacob Eason, in the first week of the season but has shown that it is the best team in the SEC East this year, crushing Mississippi State when the Bulldogs were still ranked, shutting out Tennessee on the road, routing Vanderbilt and destroying Missouri.
Now, with a much-needed bye week before Georgia faces the Florida Gators, one has to wonder: Can the Bulldogs be stopped? Will Georgia go undefeated and run the table in the division to get a rematch of the 2012 SEC Championship?
If Georgia does, this time the Bulldogs will be playing in the newly built Mercedes-Benz Stadium instead of the Georgia Dome.
The Bulldogs must continue to take each game, one week at a time. It wouldn’t hurt, however, to take an at-a-glance look at the remainder of Georgia’s schedule as the Bulldogs continue to compete for what could end up being one of the most epic SEC Championship games at the end of the season against the Crimson Tide.
