It's a good day to be a Bulldog.
The new AP poll dropped earlier today, and while the top four teams all stayed the same, Georgia jumped up two positions after stomping over Tennessee yesterday, putting them in the coveted top-5 ranking:

Clemson is now receiving 17 first-place votes in the polls, but is still a far cry from Alabama's 44 votes.
Perennial powerhouse Ohio State is holding ground at the No.10 spot, despite their complete rout of Rutgers. Another big change, yet not exactly a surprising one, is USC's catastrophic drop from No. 5 to No. 14 after dropping it's game to Washington State.
Speaking of Washington State, the Cougars are really starting to look like this season's dark horse playoff contender, and that was reflected in their 5-spot leap in the AP rankings, from No. 16 up to No. 11:

With a great set of matchups coming next weekend, I'm sure we'll be seeing even more shakeups soon.
