Michigan has eclipsed Georgia to become the new No. 1 team in our revised college football rankings, defeating the Bulldogs by one vote point in the CBS Sports 133,
our complete rating of every FBS school. Though the change in name and logo at the top appears to be a direct response to Week 6 results – which included arguably the best performance of the season for not only the Dawgs as a whole,
but more specifically Carson Beck under center – it is more of a continuation of a weeks-long trend of shakeups in the top five.
Georgia did not receive a majority of first-place votes for the first time all season two weeks ago,
with four different teams all entering the No. 1 discussion. Last week, four different teams entered the top six rankings,
including Michigan's return to No. 2. Following a strong 52-10 win over Minnesota, the Wolverines have reclaimed first place.
Georgia, of course, is solidly in second place among our voters, followed by Florida State, Ohio State, and Washington to round out the top five.
Oklahoma is one of the big movers at the top of the rankings, rising five positions to No. 6 after its historic last-minute Red River victory.
