The Bulldogs are the first team listed in the other receiving votes category, but given that they trail Georgia by 57 points, there is a pretty clear separation between the two teams, at least for this week.  With Ole Miss playing Texas A&M and Georgia traveling to Florida, there is a good chance that one of those spots could open up for the Bulldogs if they handle Kentucky.  Also of interesting note is the plunge of Ole Miss and the rise of Memphis, and seeing Temple ranked might make someone do a double take.
