We are now two weeks into the 2020 College Football season, so we are starting to get a clearer picture of how the landscape of college football is settling out.

Clemson is once again at the top of the rankings, to no one’s surprise. Let’s see how the Georgia Tech faithful voted.

  1. Clemson Tigers (LW: 1)
  2. Alabama Crimson Tide (LW: 2)
  3. Oklahoma Sooners (LW: 3)
  4. LSU Tigers (LW: 6)
  5. Ohio State Buckeyes (LW: 4)
  6. Georgia Bulldogs (LW: 5)
  7. Florida Gators (LW: 11)
  8. Auburn Tigers (LW: 8)
  9. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (LW: 10)
  10. Michigan Wolverines (LW: 7)
  11. Texas Longhorns (LW: 9)
  12. Texas A&M Aggies (LW: 12)
  13. Utah Utes (LW: 14)
  14. Penn State Nittany Lions (LW: 15)
  15. Wisconsin Badgers (LW: 16)
  16. Oregon Ducks (LW: 17)
  17. UCF Knights (LW: 18)
  18. Washington Huskies (LW: 13)
  19. Michigan State Spartans (LW: 19)
  20. Iowa Hawkeyes (LW: 20)
  21. Washington State Cougars (LW: 22)
  22. Maryland Terrapins (LW: NR)
  23. Iowa St. Cyclones (LW: 24)
  24. Virginia Cavaliers (LW: 25)
  25. Mississippi St. Bulldogs (LW: NR)

There are a few changes here. First is that Syracuse and Stanford both fell out of the Top 25 in place of Maryland and Mississippi State. What is really surprising to me is that Michigan only fell to No. 10 after the Wolverines nearly lost to Army.

Last week, Georgia Tech fan confidence was a little bit higher after the opening loss to Clemson (87 percent). After a poor offensive showing, I kind of get it, though I will disagree. I think Geoff Collins and Co. have done a very good job of beginning this transition away from Paul Johnson’s offense.

What’s more impressive to me is what they’ve been able to do with the defense. It is night and day better than it has been in recent years.

How confident are you in the direction of the football program? If your answer is no, what needs to happen for that answer to change?
