Georgia has emerged as one of college football's top programs under the leadership of head coach Kirby Smart. Now an established recruiting powerhouse, experts and fans are expecting big things out of Georgia in 2020 as they search for that elusive national title.
There's always potential for chaos in college football, as evidenced by Georgia's shocking loss to South Carolina last year. Here are three games where Georgia should be on upset watch, with all odds from FanDuel Sportsbook.

3. Week 10: Georgia (-13) @ South Carolina — Saturday, November 7
In this fierce rivalry game, South Carolina has shown the ability to win big upsets. Last year, South Carolina emerged with a 20-17 double-overtime victory, despite coming into the game as 24.5-point underdogs. In 2020, the week after a tough game against Florida, Georgia will travel to Columbia to face off against the Will Muschamp-led Gamecocks, making this matchup another potential upset.
2. Week 6: Georgia (-7.5) vs. No. 14 Auburn — Saturday, October 10
Georgia has handled Auburn well in recent years, but the Tigers will always be a tough out. In 2020, Georgia will host their SEC rivals, but that doesn't guarantee anything. Bo Nix, Gus Malzahn, and the rest of the Auburn squad are more than capable of pulling off a big upset, as they did against Alabama in 2019. Georgia won by one touchdown in 2019 and will face another tough test in 2020.
1. Week 9: Georgia (-3.5) vs. No. 5 Florida — Saturday, October 31
Georgia has won the last three editions of The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, but Florida is ahead of schedule and looking very dangerous in 2020. Both teams will travel to Jacksonville at a pivotal point in the season for a key matchup, where Georgia is currently a slight favorite after winning last year's game, 24-17. Dan Mullen's first two years at Florida have seen him go 21-5 and rebuild the school's recruiting. The Bulldogs should be circling this game on the calendar as a close contest.
