2-0 in 2019 vs top 10 for Kirby and would be # 3 had we beat South Carolina

7-3 total Kirby Smart career vs top 10

 

It’s quite the story really on the heels of what Mark Richt did NOT do vs top 10 teams his last 8 years here.

 

Fine record of 7-3

 

Auburn is the next top 10 opponent we play after Missouri which is next week.

 

 

The College Football Playoff Polls come out Tuesday 5 November 2019 and Georgia is expected to check-in at # 6.  Considering how poorly we played before Florida we are in good position but beating Alabama or LSU and Texas A&M and Auburn then someone like Clemson or Ohio State will be a challenge our guys would welcome.  Let’s beat Missouri.
