Oklahoma Jumps Georgia for the No. 2 Spot in AP Poll

Michael ClineSenior Analyst ISeptember 14, 2008

The difference is in the score differential.

Both the Oklahoma Sooners and the Georgia Bulldogs came out of Saturday's games with a victory, but Oklahoma managed to slide by Georgia in both the AP and the USA Today Polls. 

Oklahoma dominated the Washington Huskies on their home turf with a 55-14 win, in what was Bob Stoops' 100th win with the Sooners. 

Oklahoma scored over 50 points for the third time in as many games. 

The Bulldogs, on the other hand, barely got by an unranked South Carolina team. The Georgia team failed to put points on the board against a determined Gamecock defense.

However, the Georgia defense also played their hearts out to hold South Carolina to seven points.

USC held onto its top-ranked position after manhandling the Ohio State Buckeyes, who dropped to a modest 14.

Other notable changes in the AP Top 10 are Alabama at No. 9 coming off their third impressive win.

Auburn drops to No. 10, getting pushed behind both Wisconsin (8) and in-state rival Alabama, after scoring a measly three points against Mississippi State.
