Hot off the press, Bill Connelly’s moved Georgia up one tick, to fifth.
The Big Ten ekes out the advantage over the SEC, in part because of how little SP+ thinks of the SEC East. Georgia and Florida are each in the top 12 overall, but no other East team ranks in the top 40, and two rank outside of the top 80. The Big Ten’s bottom teams grade out just better enough to give it the edge. (The SEC still has Bama, though. That’s an edge, too.)
Before you ask, yes, the ACC is significantly worse. But not Clemson, unfortunately.
