The biggest college football game of the season is knocking on the door. Coming up this Saturday afternoon, the Georgia Bulldogs will host Josh Heupel and the Tennessee Volunteers for what will essentially be a playoff game here in the regular season.

Regardless, though, those rankings don’t matter. The winner of this game coming up on Saturday will have the undisputed title of the best current team in college football.
