CBS Sports ranked every team in FBS, from Nos. 1 to, 131 ahead of Week 7. And While Ohio State stayed firm atop the rankings, there is a new No. 2 teams. Georgia passed Alabama after a strong 42-10 win over Auburn. Even so, Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart was not in a celebratory mood.
“What does the score have to do with how we played?” Smart said, via Dawgs247. “It really doesn’t to me. You look at the stat line and you say, ‘Oh, we ran the ball great,’ and I think there’s a lot of times that we didn’t block it right. We got whipped at the point of attack. There’s other times that we did it right. That’s across the board.
“Defensively, all we talked about was containing the quarterback. Well, we didn’t do that all the time. He got out of there. There’s an immense amount of improvement that needs to happen for our team to get to the level we need to. I think everybody has this perception of what your ranking is and what the experts say you should beat somebody by. I keep saying over and over, we won’t get caught up in that.”
