OK, Clemson, and that's about it.

Georgia (4-0 1-0 SEC) goes to Tennessee (3-1, 0-1 SEC) this Saturday for a 3:30 p.m. game on CBS.

"As receivers, we love for that first play to be a pass, and we went out there and executed it and put our team on top". "That's really all you can ask from a starting quarterback, just make good decisions and let guys make plays".

Now, they've got to show they can handle the hype. So you keep moving forward, and you keep playing football. "That's not what we came here for, but we're going to get it fixed".

For Georgia, that's the suddenly fragile Volunteers in Tennessee.

Saquon Barkley had 211 yards rushing and 94 yards receiving for the Nittany Lions (4-0, 1-0), who outgained Iowa 579-273 but almost blew a game that could've been crippling to their postseason hopes.

The No. 7 ranking matches the highest all season for MI, which improved to 4-0 after a 28-10 victory at Purdue on Saturday. Not with all of that speed and strength everywhere for the Bulldogs from around here.

No. 20 Florida 28, Kentucky 27 • Luke Del Rio threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Freddie Swain with 43 seconds left to tie the game, then Eddy Pineiro hit the extra point to propel the visiting Gators (2-1, 2-0) to victory after trailing by 13 points the fourth quarter. Chubb spearheaded a versatile Georgia rushing attack, carrying 15 times for 81 yards and two scores, while D'Andre Swift rushed nine times for 72 yards and Sony Michel added seven carries for 32 yards. He had Georgia and Mississippi State as his top two teams and he saw enough on Saturday. He moves quickly and effortlessly along every axis - including vertically if he has to hurdle a defender - and he just refused to be bottled up against Iowa, putting up 358 all-purpose yards in the Nittany Lions' 21-19 thriller.

The Gamecocks (3-1) trailed 13-0 before a wild fourth quarter that saw SC take a 14-13 lead and Louisiana Tech (2-2) answer with a 10-play, 84-yard drive that ended with what appeared to be the game winning 25-yard field goal by Jonathan Barnes with 55 seconds left.

Christian Kirk had given the Aggies the lead on a 10-yard touchdown reception, his third score of the day, on the first possession of overtime before Watts intercepted Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen in the end zone on a third-down play.

The freshman has completed almost 60 percent of his passes for 449 yards, with 5 touchdowns and just 1 interception.

There was Fromm, for instance. The Bulldogs ran for 203 yards and passed for 201, leading Smart to feign disappointment that they weren't 202 and 202. Still, when the Syracuse head coaching job came open a couple years ago, Orgeron said in a radio interview that he would be interested. Even when times get tough, he's out there smiling, and he's just that calm, cool, collected guy that everybody knows. We have to get him to make good decisions. Barring a complete upset, the West Division champion should have no trouble winning the SEC championship game and advancing to the College Football Playoff. Prior to Samford, Georgia took on Appalachian State and Notre Dame.

How early was all of that obvious?

"Nobody wants to lose two games in a row", Orange linebacker Zaire Franklin said, referring to LSU's situation this week. The Bulldogs jumped out to a 14-0 lead thanks to the steady play of quarterback Jake Fromm, running back Nick Chubb and a defense that limited Mississippi State to just 4.0 yards per play. "We fed off the crowd, we fed off the offense and we fed off each other on defense". Mississippi State did hold the Dawgs off the board in the second quarter, but they also put up their only three points of the game.

Game over. Or so it seemed.

With the exception of a 26-yard field goal by Jace Christmann at the end of the first half and two fruitless fourth-quarter drives that ended at the 11- and 1-yard line, respectively, Mississippi State crossed midfield only two other times.
