The Georgia Bulldogs are currently sitting at 5-0 and ranked No. 2 in the nation after the first five weeks of the season.
Georgia has seven games remaining on its schedule and the month of October features games against four ranked opponents. The Dawgs knocked one out of the way already, beating then-ranked No. 8 Arkansas 37-0 last weekend. But a tough stretch of games in October include Auburn, Kentucky and Florida. Come out of the month undefeated and the Dawgs can coast the rest of the way with games against Missouri, Tennessee, Charleston Southern and Georgia Tech.
Below I predict the outcome of every remaining game on UGA’s schedule.

Score prediction: 31-3, Georgia
What’s going to happen: I think it will be close through the first quarter and both offenses will struggle, but Georgia will start rolling some point in the second quarter. Auburn’s defense is not bad, but its offense won’t be able to do anything against the nation’s No. 1 ranked defense. Thanks to stellar defense, Georgia will have plenty of opportunities on offense.
New record: 6-0
Oct. 16: Kentucky (Athens, Ga.)

Score prediction: 27-10, Georgia
What’s going to happen: Georgia vs Kentucky has been a relatively low scoring game since Kirby Smart came to Athens. It’s usually a lot of running and a lot of defense, but UGA always pulls away. Expect the same in Week 7. Kentucky will receive a heavy dose of Georgia’s run game, and eventually will fold in third quarter. Expect a close score at halftime, but then the Dawgs run wild in the second half.
New record: 7-0
Oct. 30: Florida (Jacksonville, Fl.)

Score prediction: 24-10, Georgia
What’s going to happen: Georgia owns them from the start. JT Daniels throws three touchdowns and the Dawgs jump out to a 21-0 lead before the Gators get a few scores.
New record: 8-0

Score prediction: 45-0, Georgia
What’s going to happen: Georgia dominates from start to finish.
New record: 9-0

Score prediction: 42-10, Georgia
What’s going to happen: I bet Georgia Tech fans will think they have a chance, but come on. Dawgs win big and it’s never close.
New record: 12-0
