ESPN Names Georgia A 'Legit' National Title Sleeper In 2017

The Worldwide Leader is high on the Bulldogs heading into 2017.

The SEC East appears to be pretty wide-open heading into the 2017 college football season and ESPN believes Georgia is primed to take advantage of that.

ESPN college football writer K.C. Joyner says the Bulldogs are a legitimate national title "sleeper" team.

From ESPN:

Georgia might be the only SEC East team that can match up to Alabama in terms of raw talent. If the Bulldogs can use that talent to run the table against a possibly favorable regular-season schedule -- or at the worst, have only one loss heading into the SEC championship game -- they will be in a very good position to claim one of the four CFP roster slots.

Georgia, expected to be ranked in the top 15 in the preseason polls heading into the '17 season, opens its campaign Saturday, Sept. 2 against Appalachian State.
