The Georgia Bulldogs had a humbling experience in the rain in Week 5, getting blown out at home to the Alabama Crimson Tide, 38-10.
So we have to pick ourselves up this week for another SEC game, this time in a tough road environment in Neyland Stadium, the most unforgiving field in college football. It’s not if, but when ACLs will tear on the Banks of the Tennessee River. Let’s hope that UGA can come out of Week 6’s date with the Tennessee Volunteers, both unscathed and with a W.
Week 5 brought many shifts in the college football landscape. Now that we’re in the heart of Conference Play, I’m certain we’re about to see even more of it. Last year’s preconceived notions about certain teams are no more. We are about to enter the sixth week of the 2015 NCAA Regular Season, folks. So let’s enjoy the ride, wherever it may take our Georgia Bulldogs.

The Georgia Bulldogs still control their own destiny in the SEC East. Of course, Georgia would have to win its final five SEC games to make it to Atlanta, but it is possible. I feel that the Alabama game was the toughest team we will play all season. Hopefully HC Mark Richt and his team learned something about themselves in Week 5 and can build on it throughout the rest of the regular season.
There is still plenty of football left on the tilt. Without further ado, here’s the SEC East Power Rankings for Week 6. Some shifts in this ranking may come as a surprise, but expect them to shift weekly here on out.
