Which teams could prevent Georgia from repeating as national champs?

With three regular season games to go, it’s hard to imagine No. 1 Georgia (9-0) losing a matchup remaining on its schedule, though it’s certainly not an easy stretch.

UGA has road games at Mississippi State and Kentucky before closing with Georgia Tech at home.

But will UGA face LSU, Ole Miss or Alabama in the SEC title?

What about the CFP?

LSU is on pace to clinch the SEC West.

But first, it needs to beat Arkansas this weekend (LSU -3, per BetMGM).

Georgia’s looking to repeat as national champions this season.

So far those prospects are looking good for the Dawgs.

They’re 9-0 and the odds of repeating are sitting at plus-110, per BetMGM.

But winning a national championship is hard enough. Repeating is extremely difficult. … I’d imagine.

I listed the seven teams that I think pose the biggest threat to Georgia repeating as national champs this year:

7. Mississippi State Bulldogs Mississippi State national title odds: +50,000 Spread: Georgia -16.5 This is a road game that will be difficult for Georgia.

6. TCU Horned Frogs TCU national title odds: +3,000

5. Kentucky Wildcats Kentucky national title odds: +50,000 Remember when everyone was saying Georgia had an easy schedule? I said that, too, this offseason. There is nothing easy about the second half of this schedule for the Bulldogs.

5. Kentucky Wildcats Oct. 29: Florida (W) Nov. 5: Tennessee (W) Nov. 12: at Mississippi State (TBD) Nov. 19: at Kentucky (TBD)

4. LSU Tigers Kentucky national title odds: +5,000

3. Michigan Wolverines Michigan national title odds: +900

2. Tennessee Volunteers Tennessee national title odds: +2,000 The current CFP rankings: 1. Georgia 2. Ohio State 3. Michigan 4. TCU 5. Tennessee

1. Ohio State Buckeyes Ohio State national title odds: +200

If Georgia makes it to the College Football Playoff, consider Ohio State the team I want to avoid.

“They have not played anyone” is what people are saying. I don’t care.

That does not mean anything to me when they have the offensive firepower they do.

No. 1 in the nation in scoring offense and No. 8 in scoring defense.

They would score points on Georgia, and the problem is they’d be able to stop the Bulldogs’ offense if Stetson Bennett is not playing at his absolute best.
