College Football’s Two-Horse Race

October 4, 2021 College Football’s Two-Horse Race

Top-10 Shakeup Leaves #1 Alabama and #2 Georgia in a League of Their Own

Mayhem in college football’s top-10 has arrived again. Saturday brought stunning upsets for No. 3 Oregon and No. 10 Florida while No. 7 Cincinnati knocked No. 9 Notre Dame out of the top-10. And with all the noise around teams 3-10, there’s a clear and obvious two-horse race building as the calendar turns to October. Alabama and Georgia were both blowout winners against formidable opponents, and the SEC juggernauts appear to be in a league of their own. Here’s the latest look at the AP Top-25 following Week 5.
