Georgia News and Notes

News and Notes coming from the Georgia Camp to begin the Auburn Week.

ATHENS - Georgia moved up what is basically a meaningless spot in the BCS on Monday.

The Bulldogs went from No. 9 to No. 8 thanks to Tennessee's loss to Notre Dame on Saturday, which dropped the Volunteers from No. 8 to No. 15. USC remained No. 1 in the BCS, and Oklahoma remained No. 2. Auburn is No. 3.

In order for the Bulldog to guarantee themselves anything, they'll have to move up to at least No. 4 in the rankings. A non-champion of a BCS league must be No. 3 or No. 4 in the standings to guarantee a BCS bowl bid. If a non-champion is at No. 3, it is guaranteed a spot but the No. 4 team is not unless it is a league champion. Teams from a non-BCS conference need only to finish in the top six of the rankings to guarantee a BCS bowl bid.

SEC HONOR: Guard Nick Jones was named the SEC's offensive lineman of the week Monday. Jones helped clear the way for 589 yards of total offense for the Bulldogs last week. He graded out at 90 percent and had two "dominator" blocks.

BACK IN TIME: ESPN Classic will get a lot of programming out of the Georgia-Auburn rivalry this week. The network broadcast the 1995 game Monday, but don't worry, you haven't missed your last chance. The 1994 game, a 23-23 tie, will be on today at 3 p.m. The 1986 game, a 20-16 Georgia win, will be one at 3 p.m. Thursday. The 1983 game, a 13-7 Auburn win, will be on at 3 p.m. Friday.

Bulldog fans also have a chance to see a Georgia Public Television feature on Sanford Stadium on TV tonight at 9.

THE BIG TIME: For the second time this season, ESPN's College GameDay crew will be at a Georgia game. Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Lee Corso will broadcast their show from Auburn on Saturday, where the Bulldogs will play at 3:30 p.m. in Jordan-Hare Stadium. GameDay also was in Columbia, S.C., when Georgia beat South Carolina 20-16.
