The Bulldog's rout of the South Carolina Gamecocks and Middle Tennessee didn't go unnoticed by The Associated Press' college football poll.

Georgia moved up a spot to second behind the Alabama Crimson Tide, giving the Southeastern Conference the top two teams in the ranking. Clemson is third with three first-place votes, followed by No. 4 Ohio State and No. 5 Oklahoma.

This was the first time this season that Clemson has slipped out of the No. 2 spot. Top-ranked Alabama also strengthened its hold on No. 1 on Sunday, receiving a season-high 58 first-place votes from the media panel.

The other big leap came to LSU, who surged to No. 6 after its second victory against a highly ranked team in September. LSU started at No. 25 at the start of the season.

The Bulldogs will be against unranked Missouri next Saturday.
