ATHENS - Georgia moved up what is basically a meaningless spot in the BCS on Monday.
The Bulldogs went from No. 9 to No. 8 thanks to Tennessee's loss to
Notre Dame on Saturday, which dropped the Volunteers from No. 8 to No.
15. USC remained No. 1 in the BCS, and Oklahoma remained No. 2.
Auburn is No. 3.
In order for the Bulldog to guarantee themselves anything, they'll
have to move up to at least No. 4 in the rankings. A non-champion of a
BCS league must be No. 3 or No. 4 in the standings to guarantee a BCS
bowl bid. If a non-champion is at No. 3, it is guaranteed a spot but the
No. 4 team is not unless it is a league champion. Teams from a non-BCS
conference need only to finish in the top six of the rankings to
guarantee a BCS bowl bid.
SEC HONOR: Guard Nick Jones was named the SEC's offensive lineman of
the week Monday. Jones helped clear the way for 589 yards of total
offense for the Bulldogs last week. He graded out at 90 percent and had
two "dominator" blocks.
BACK IN TIME: ESPN Classic will get a lot of programming out of the
Georgia-Auburn rivalry this week. The network broadcast the 1995 game
Monday, but don't worry, you haven't missed your last chance. The 1994
game, a 23-23 tie, will be on today at 3 p.m. The 1986 game, a 20-16
Georgia win, will be one at 3 p.m. Thursday. The 1983 game, a 13-7
Auburn win, will be on at 3 p.m. Friday.
Bulldog fans also have a chance to see a Georgia Public Television
feature on Sanford Stadium on TV tonight at 9.
THE BIG TIME: For the second time this season, ESPN's College GameDay
crew will be at a Georgia game. Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Lee
Corso will broadcast their show from Auburn on Saturday, where the
Bulldogs will play at 3:30 p.m. in Jordan-Hare Stadium. GameDay also was
in Columbia, S.C., when Georgia beat South Carolina 20-16.
