ATLANTA (AP) — The No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs have their eyes on the biggest prize of all.
Yet there's a gnawing desire to add another Southeastern Conference title to the trophy case.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A healthy Kenny McIntosh and strong play from the offensive line have No. 1 Georgia’s running game peaking just in time for the postseason.
The Bulldogs ran for more than 200 yards in each of their last two regular-season games, providing valuable momentum for Saturday's Southeastern Conference championship game against No.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia's recent frustrations in the Southeastern Conference championship game are providing extra motivation for the Bulldogs to remain focused this week.
Saturday's matchup against No.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia coach Kirby Smart sees a change in Georgia Tech's play and players under interim coach Brent Key.
“You can see that the kids are playing with a lot more passion and energy,” Smart said.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Between Kenny McIntosh and Jack Podlesny, top-ranked Georgia got all the important points it needed on a day where style points weren't possible.
STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — No. 1 Georgia is going to the SEC championship game.
Stetson Bennett and company just keep rolling along.
Bennett threw for three touchdowns, and undefeated Georgia beat Mississippi State 45-19 on Saturday night.
Neither top-ranked Georgia nor coach Kirby Smart buy the notion that their toughest test is behind them.
The challenges never really stop for Smart's Bulldogs (9-0, 6-0 Southeastern Conference) — the target is always there as defending national champions and being No.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Kirby Smart was obviously in a hurry to get through his postgame news conference and join his recruits after Saturday's win over Tennessee.
At one point, the Georgia coach asked longtime sports information director Claude Felton if he was trying “to set some kind of record” for the longest news conference after a game.
Georgia has aspired to be Alabama.
Not just a national champion. The Bulldogs did that last year, going through the Crimson Tide to snap a 41-year title drought.
Georgia wants to set the standard in college football, the program that contends for national titles every season and wins them routinely.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — In the biggest games, Stetson Bennett seems to rise to the occasion and above his often more heralded counterparts.
Bennett threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score as No.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia coach Kirby Smart just smiled and shook his head when asked if he has stressed conditioning in preparation for Saturday's visit from Tennessee and its fast-paced offense.
November is when statements for the league championship and beyond are made, and several Southeastern Conference teams are part of the discussion.
Fittingly, the season’s final month commences this weekend with a pair of consequential matchups that could determine participants in next month’s SEC title game in Atlanta and how many represent the league in the four-team College Football Playoff.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia safety Dan Jackson is facing foot surgery that could end his season.
Coach Kirby Smart said Tuesday night that Jackson, tied for sixth on the team in tackles, won't be available for No.
As the home team in Saturday's neutral site game against Florida, No. 1 Georgia can leave tickets at the gate for recruits.
For Georgia coach Kirby Smart, that's not nearly enough to make up for his defending national championship team's inability to host recruits as he would in a true home game.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The Georgia Bulldogs are back atop the rankings, even though their style points are a bit lacking.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Back-to-back unimpressive wins over Kent State and Missouri did more than knock Georgia from the top spot in the AP Top 25.
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The two most important characteristics that Georgia coach Kirby Smart seeks in his team are composure and resiliency, and the top-ranked Bulldogs needed to rely on both to rally past Missouri on Saturday night.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Georgia has one of college football's prolific offenses, triggered by one of its best quarterbacks, so of course the topic of conversation around Athens as the top-ranked Bulldogs head to Missouri on Saturday would be their run game.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Defensive back Javon Bullard's status for No. 1 Georgia's Southeastern Conference game at Missouri on Saturday is uncertain after he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Defending national champion Georgia needed only two games to convince voters it should return to the top of the AP Top 25.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A shutout win wasn't enough for a No. 2 Georgia coming off its impressive opener when it scored touchdowns on its first seven offensive possessions.
The reigning national champions fell short of that lofty standard against FCS Samford.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Chris Hatcher has good reason to feel proud of Kirby Smart's success in bringing a national championship to Georgia.
After all, Hatcher gave Smart his first coaching job.
Maybe Georgia was underrated.
The defending national champions came into the season ranked No. 3 in the country and hardly overlooked behind No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Ohio State.
But after losing 15 players to the NFL draft, including nearly half a defense in the first round, it seemed fair to bake in a little bit of regression.
ATLANTA (AP) — Stetson Bennett and the Georgia defense picked up where they left off in last year’s national championship game, even with a bunch of their former teammates now playing in the NFL.
Bennett threw for 368 yards and accounted for three touchdowns, a revamped defense didn't miss a beat, and the No.
The first big weekend of college football is bursting with storylines and intrigue.
Here are some things to watch this week in the Pac-12 Conference:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — When you build a powerhouse program, it's inevitable that others will try to copy your success.
That means hiring people who work for you.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia's impressive class of NFL draft candidates commanded an unusually large audience at the school's Pro Day on Wednesday.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kirby Smart learned from his former boss that the time for celebrating is short in college football.
Even while he reveled Tuesday in the hangover from Georgia's first national title since 1980, the coach was already thinking about what comes next.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Confetti rained down on Georgia. The Bulldogs fans chanted “Kir-by, Kir-by!”
Four decades of pent-up emotion were unleashed Monday night as the Bulldogs snapped a frustrating national championship drought by vanquishing their nemesis.
Georgia won its long-awaited national championship the way it dominated during an undefeated regular season — by relying on its defense.
The Bulldogs allowed only 30 yards rushing in beating Alabama 33-18 on Monday night in Indianapolis.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Georgia coach Kirby Smart got an inside look at what it takes to build a college football juggernaut working for Nick Saban at Alabama for eight seasons.
Blueprint in hand, Smart took over at his alma mater in 2016, and the Bulldogs have been ascending ever since, going 57-10 in the last five seasons.
After Georgia beat Florida in November, Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart was asked about the importance of recruiting. His response was both obvious and emphatic:
“The best coach to ever play the game better be a good recruiter because no coaching is going to outcoach players," he said.
Kirby Smart did his best to get ahead of the questions about Nick Saban while acknowledging the topic was inevitable.
It seems the Georgia coach can't avoid Saban, when championships — and Smart's big-game legacy — are on the line.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — With one overwhelming half at the Orange Bowl, No. 3 Georgia showed that a humbling loss to Alabama did not break the Bulldogs.
