(AP) - No. 2 Georgia is hosting UAB in its home opener after a huge win over Clemson to start the season.

The 10-3 triumph pushed the Bulldogs up three spots in this week’s AP poll. Only defending national champion Alabama is ahead of Georgia in the rankings.

Despite a huge surge in COVID-19 cases, this will mark the first full-capacity game at Sanford Stadium since the 2019 season.

UAB opened the season with a 31-0 rout of FCS school Jacksonville State. The Blazers are facing Georgia for the first time since 2006.
