If there’s a common nag about Georgia’s start this season, it’s that Clemson’s preseason luster has completely worn off. Yet, if you checked yesterday’s FPI, you’d find Georgia’s strength of schedule is currently a more than respectable 28th. Sagarin gives Georgia a SOS ranking of 35th.
So if the bloom is coming off the Tigers’ rose, what’s buoying Georgia’s ranking? Believe it or not, it may be UAB, which quietly has done alright outside of its trip to Athens.
UAB beat Tulane on the road by a wider margin than Oklahoma did at home, for what that’s worth.
Sagarin ranks the Blazers at 58, which is better than four SEC East teams.
