Georgia was nowhere to be found when the initial BCS standings of the season came out on Sunday night, but the Bulldogs made the top 25 in five of the six computers used in the BCS formula.
Here’s how the Bulldogs landed there from highest to lowest:
Anderson & Hester: No. 20
Massey: No. 20
Wolfe: No. 22
Colley Matrix: No. 25
Billingsley: No. 25
Sagarin: No. 31
Georgia had the No. 1 rated strength of schedule by Anderson & Hester and Colley and No. 2 by Sagarin.
Georgia has played four teams in the BCS standings: No. 5 Missouri, No. 9 Clemson, No. 13 LSU and No. 21 South Carolina.
The USA Today coaches’ poll, Harris Interactive Poll and the computer rankings each make up a third of the BCS standings. The Bulldogs were outside the top 25 in the human polls this week. Each computer ranking accounts for schedule strength in its formula.
