Georgia is 6th in the new BCS standings released Sunday night.
Alabama continues to hold the No. 1 spot, followed by Kansas State, Notre Dame, Oregon and LSU.
The Bulldogs surged in the rankings after a 17-9 win over Florida Saturday.
Notre Dame moved ahead of Oregon and into the third spot. The Ducks are being hurt by the strength of their schedule. But Oregon plays three opponents in the BCS top 25 (USC, Stanford and Oregon State) in its last four games, starting with the Trojans on Saturday.
Notre Dame, with four games left, faces only one more team with a winning record (USC). Kansas State has three winning teams in its four remaining opponents, though only No. 25 Texas is in the BCS top 25.
Alabama is an overwhelming No. 1 but has what looks to be its toughest test of the season coming up this week, when it visits fifth-place LSU on Saturday.
