(ESPN) – Georgia overtook Ohio State for the No. 1 spot in the newest College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday night, after back-to-back wins over Top 25 opponents.

The Bulldogs are coming off victories over No. 13 Ole Miss (52-17) this past weekend and No. 9 Missouri (30-21) on Nov. 4, bolstering a schedule that had been lacking quality wins. They will have an opportunity to enhance their strength of schedule argument further this Saturday when they face No. 18 Tennessee in Knoxville, Tenn.

The Buckeyes dropped to No. 2, switching spots with Georgia. They still have two Top 25 victories — against Notre Dame and Penn State — enough to keep them ahead of rival Michigan.

“[Georgia] showed their dominance on offense and on defense against a really strong Mississippi offense,” CFP chair Boo Corrigan said on ESPN’s rankings release show Tuesday night. “So in looking at it and the resume and everything combined, we thought Georgia was the No. 1 team this week.”

The Wolverines stayed at No. 3 after their first Top 25 win of the season, 24-15 over Penn State; the Nittany Lions only moved down two spots in the rankings to No. 12.
