Georgia Holds the Top Spot, Colorado Climbs the Ranks

September 6, 2023 by Staff

Many people would admit that they have always thought Coach Prime might be fantastic at Colorado. With that said, show us someone who rated him in their preseason poll. You probably won’t find someone who did that.

And, in other news, not everyone thought that WynnBET would be shutting down. But now, WynnBET is closing its online sportsbook and casino in the majority of the states, which is sad news for many sports fans.

Georgia Remains the Leader, Colorado Goes Up

We guess that not everyone cared about how Prime was assembling his team since December of last year, which was also the month Shedeur Sanders was named by many as the top Heisman candidate.

While he was in the middle of a 27-6 run at HBCU Jackson State, few people were able to get an interview from the guy. When Travis Hunter turned down Florida State and signed with an FCS team instead, not everyone thought he would become the top player.

They are now listed among the top 25 teams in the nation for a second week in a row, and if AP voters are to be trusted, they’ll remain there for the first time since December 2020.

College Football Rankings

Let’s look at the college football rankings and see how Georgia and Colorado performed thus far.

1. Georgia (1-0) defeated UT-Martin, 48-7
In his 2023 debut, UGA quarterback Carson Beck threw 21 of 31 passes for 294 yards and made a touchdown. With 6:57 remaining in the game, the Dawg defense finally let up a point to their FCS foe.

2. Michigan (1-0) defeated East Carolina, 30-3
The Wolverines defeated their American Athletic Conference opponent with surprisingly little difficulty without offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore or head coach Jim Harbaugh. With three touchdown passes in the victory, quarterback J.J. McCarthy completed 26 of 30 passes.

3. Ohio State (1-0) defeated Indiana, 23-3
In the second half, Indiana was kept scoreless and no touchdowns were allowed by the Buckeye defense. Although the offense struggled against the Hoosiers, defensive coordinator Jim Knowles' defense was very impressive, giving the Buckeye supporters cause for optimism.

Moving a bit down the rankings, we see Kansas State, Wisconsin, and Colorado.

16. Kansas State (1-0) defeated Southeast Missouri State, 45-0
Will Howard, the quarterback for the Wildcats, was set loose and completed 18 of 25 throws for 297 yards with a TD and an INT. The fact that Kansas State was one of just two ranked teams to pitch shutouts in Week 1 will surely make the team feel better.

18. Wisconsin (1-0) defeated Buffalo, 38-17
When the "Dairy Raid" first appeared, Wisconsin was mostly unaffected. Braelon Allen and Chez Mellusi combined for 298 run yards on 30 rushes and four touchdowns.

18. Colorado (1-0) defeated TCU, 45-42
Shedeur Sanders' school-record 510 throwing yards and Travis Hunter's first 100-yard receiving-INT performance in this century helped the Buffaloes win their first true road opening since 1995. They became the first team to defeat a top-ranked opponent in 2023.
