The Georgia Bulldogs moved up to the No. 1 spot in the USA Today Coaches Top 25, which was released on Sunday.  

The Bulldogs (6-0) received all but one of the 65 first-place votes and moved up just one spot, but that was all they needed to reach No. 1 in the poll for the first time since 2008.

The other first-place vote went to Iowa (6-0), which defeated Penn State at home on Saturday. The Hawkeyes were No. 3 last week.

Alabama (5-1), the previous No. 1, slid down to No. 5 after its loss to Texas A&M.
