College Football America FBS Top 30: Georgia Holds Firm at No. 1

Georgia Bulldogs

At the top of our College Football America Yearbook FBS rankings for Week 7, Georgia holds on to the No. 1 spot after beating No. 9 Kentucky, 30-13. Look, the visiting Wildcats did all they could do, but they just couldn’t crack Georgia’s defense. But then again, nobody has figured out how to do that yet, and ultimately this one went the way we expected. Kentucky was supposed to lose this, and it would have been one of the biggest wins in program history if they had figured out how to get out of Athens with a win. They hang on to their No. 9 spot this week.

No. 2 Alabama won easily on the road at No. 28 Mississippi State in a 49-9 rout. No. 3 Oklahoma beat TCU, 52-31, and got another star turn from true freshman Caleb Williams at quarterback. Suddenly, the Sooners look much more formidable than the early season squad that struggled at home against Tulane. No. 4 Ohio State was idle, but No. 5 Michigan and No. 6 Penn State are each up a spot after previous No. 5 Iowa was upset at home by unranked Purdue. Iowa falls to No. 13 in our rankings this week.

Cincinnati eases up a spot to No. 7 after whipping UCF, and Oklahoma State makes its first ever appearance in our Top 10 jumping three spots to No. 8 after rallying in the fourth quarter to win at No. 26 Texas. Following Kentucky holding steady in that No. 9 slot is Notre Dame – still at No. 10 following their bye week.
