The Georgia Bulldogs have finished the 2018 season in the top ten of the final college football rankings.

Georgia (11-3, 6-2 SEC) ended the season with consecutive losses, 35-28 to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game and 28-21 to the Texas Longhorns in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. As a result, the Bulldogs dropped one spot in the AP Poll to 7th, tied with Florida, and two spots in the Coaches Poll to 8th.

Texas moved up from 14th to 9th in both the AP Poll and Coaches Poll after their victory over the Bulldogs.

Clemson tops both polls after crushing Alabama 44-16 in the College Football National Championship. The Tigers finished the season undefeated at 15-0 and became the first team to accomplish that record since Penn back in 1897.

Alabama finished the season ranked second. The Crimson Tide are followed by Ohio State (3rd), Oklahoma (4th), and Notre Dame (5th) in both polls.

Other SEC teams that finished ranked include LSU (6th AP, 7th Coaches), Florida (7th AP, 6th Coaches), Kentucky (12th AP, 11th Coaches), Texas A&M (16th AP and Coaches), and Mississippi State (25th Coaches).
