2014 BTD Top 25: Dawgs Down

There were not any real winners on the day, but Georgia losing to South Carolina was probably the biggest move on the day.

Georgia was the biggest loser on the day, and they might be out of the playoff picture.

Georgia and Virginia Tech were the two big losers, as they both lost and plummeted down the ranks. The Hokies' loss will also impact Ohio State too, as they are a weaker team in a weaker conference and it only makes both the Big 10 and the ACC look worse, as Va Tech lost to East Carolina. This will likely play out to some degree, but Ohio State's name recognition will probably keep them in circulation.

USC and UCLA were both losers; the Trojans actually lost to a Boston College team that is not great, and UCLA barely held on to beat Texas. The Bruins have failed to impress anybody yet, and the offense seems like a mess. Both of them have a chance to make a move when they begin conference play. In the national media the Pac-12 has still gained some regard this season and a winning streak in conference play could bump either one of them up.

South Carolina was the only real winner of the weekend, and they still didn't vault up, most likely due to their loss to Texas A&M. Hopefully more conference games will shake things up a little more.
