The top five teams in our SEC Power Rankings all have Power Five victories, but the Georgia Bulldogs have the worst one of them, just beating the Vanderbilt Commodores. Of the top tier teams on our list, it’s even worse. We believe Kirby Smart’s team to still be the most talented team in the league, but they have to prove more before they move out of No. 3.

Still, this is a dominant program. Even if it was against an FCS team, topping the Murray State Racers with 63 points is not a thing the Dawgs do, so they deserve some credit. They are clearly one of the most overwhelming, dominant teams that nobody wants to play, and two No. 1 recruiting classes, including the greatest class ever, is paying off.

UGA is now winning in the most boring way. They don’t want to have to run up the score, and when they do it’s just because of how deep they are. But their typical wins will be like their 30-6 victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores to open the season.

This week, the Dawgs face the Arkansas State Red Wolves in another certain, dominating game. But after that, they get a solid first test against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Then they face the Vols, South Carolina Gamecocks and Kentucky Wildcats. So they will at worst be 6-1 and should be 7-0 before facing the Florida Gators.
