The Georgia Bulldogs are the new number one team in the country according to the newly released AP top 25 poll. UGA leapt over Alabama after the Crimson Tide struggled to beat Texas on Saturday. Several upsets this weekend shook up the college football rankings with big falls for Notre Dame and Texas A&M.

Sun Belt surprises

Saturday was a day that the Sun Belt Conference will not forget in a hurry. Three teams from the conference caused huge upsets, with Marshall and Georgia Southern taking down top 10 opposition. Marshall beat number eight, Notre Dame, at South Bend, and now the Fighting Irish are out of the top 25.

Georgia Southern went College Station to take on number six, Texas A&M. The Aggies had a chance to kick a game-tying field goal with four minutes left, but the kick barely got off the ground and Georgia Southern took home the ‘W’. Texas A&M dropped to 24th in the week 3 poll.

Three teams ascend into 25

Last week’s number one, Alabama traveled to Texas to take on the Longhorns. A field goal in the dying seconds was enough to secure victory for Alabama, but not enough to cling on to the number one spot in the college football rankings. That spot now belongs to the Georgia Bulldogs. Georgia have beaten Samford and Oregon over the last two weeks without getting out of first gear.

The new entries into the top 25 this week include Texas, whose one point loss to Alabama was viewed favorably in the pollsters’ eyes. Penn State and Oregon are also included this week, after being left out last week.

The full rankings are as follows:
