Georgia was No. 1 in the AP poll last week, but was No. 3 in the first College Football Playoff rankings. And then The Bulldogs are coming off a win against Tennessee on SaturdayIt would be a shock if Georgia wasn’t No. 1 in both rankings.

Tennessee was the top-ranked team in the CFP poll, but tied for No. 2 with Ohio State in the AP poll. Following Saturday’s loss, the Volunteers dropped three spots to No. 5.

The SEC’s other big game had similar polling implications. LSU upset Alabama on a successful two-point conversion attempt in overtime. As a result, LSU moved up 8 spots from 15th to 7th in the AP Poll. Meanwhile, Alabama fell 4 spots to 10th.
