When next week’s championship games, and then after the College Football Playoff national title is determined on Jan. 10, there will be two polls remaining this season.
Georgia has a chance to shatter Alabama’s record if it wins the SEC championship game next weekend and goes on to win the playoffs.
However, the Bulldogs should remember that Alabama’s streak of unanimous No. 1 rankings came to an end with a national championship game defeat to Clemson, and the Crimson Tide finished second.
Clemson (9-3) is back in the Top 25 after dropping out during the September weekend. The Tigers have resurrected their season, winning seven of their last eight games.
