Joel Klatt releases latest top 10 rankings following Week 3 action – Saturday Down South

Even those who agree on most things won’t always have the same rankings in college football. FOX Sports’ Joel Klatt might agree that several programs deserve to be ranked inside the top 10, but the order they appear could be different than other voters.
In Klatt’s latest ranking, only 2 SEC teams were mentioned inside the top 10. No surprise, Georgia remained at No. 1 following its 48-7 win over South Carolina. Despite picking up a massive 63-7 win over Louisiana-Monroe, Alabama fell to No. 3 in the ranking behind Ohio State.

Both Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett and Alabama gunslinger Bryce Young should be front-runners for the Heisman Trophy entering Week 4. Against the Gamecocks, Bennett went 16-of-23 passing for 278 yards and 2 touchdowns. In Tuscaloosa, Young went 13-of-18 passing for 236 yards and 3 touchdowns. He also tossed a pair of interceptions before being pulled in the fourth quarter.
Klatt did mention 2 SEC programs as honorable mentions entering Week 4. Arkansas needed 4 quarters to pull out a win over FCS Missouri State at home. Meanwhile, Kentucky battled early but pulled out the 31-0 win over Youngstown State. Wildcats quarterback Will Levis threw for 377 yards and 2 touchdowns,  but also tossed 2 interceptions in the process.
The top-ranked Bulldogs take on Kent State at home while the Crimson Tide plays host to Vanderbilt. Kentucky will face Northern Illinois at home while Arkansas will make the trip down to AT&T Stadium to face No. 24 Texas A&M.

I suppose 0-0 at end of 1st qtr with KY knocking on the door could be considered struggling. If you watched the game I guess they struggled on O with a Youngstown team that came ready to play, but never on D. The field position game was well in hand. I think that Youngstown made 1 first down in the first half, and that might have been by penalty?
The 21-0 2nd qtr wasn’t much of a struggle…
