ATLANTA — The Georgia Bulldogs are back in a familiar position -- the Top 4 of the College Football Playoff rankings!

The top three stayed the same after No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson and No. 3 Notre Dame all won last week.

But No. 4 Michigan was blown out by then-No. 10 Ohio State, opening the door for the Dawgs to move up.

Oklahoma and Ohio State make up the Top 6.


Georgia and Alabama meet Saturday in the SEC Championship Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The winner is guaranteed a spot in the Top 4.

The loser will probably be sweating on Sunday afternoon when the final rankings are released.

Ohio State plays Northwestern in the Big 10 Championship Game and Oklahoma faces Texas in the Big 12 Championship Game. Both teams must win to have any chance at making the Top 4.
