It is tough for any coach to find consistency in a game in which players return and rotate on based on the opponent. But what Georgia has done well recently is that it is gone on six-game winning streak despite this challenge. The team has taken the time off to rest while the coaches are allowed to change the lineup, which has led to some interesting matchups. Against Notre Dame this past week, the Bulldogs played a trio at the same time.

Hours after Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel reported the deal, Oregon made it official that Georgia defensive coordinator Dan Lanning will be the Ducks’ next coach. Lanning replaces Mario Cristobal after he left to become the head coach at Miami, his alma mater.“We are so happy for Dan and his family," Georgia coach Kirby Smart said in a statement. "He and [wife] Sophia have been an important part of our Bulldog family for the last four years and we thank them for all they did for Georgia football and the Athens community. Opportunities like this are a testament to a successful program. While he will coach with us for the upcoming College Football Playoff, we will move forward with Glenn Schumann and Will Muschamp as co-defensive coordinators. Dan and I are both looking forward to preparing for the CFP.”

With Lanning in charge of the Ducks, there are six Power Five head coaches who were assistants on that coaching staff. Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin was the offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator Smart has been Lanning’s boss at Georgia, Cristobal was the offensive line coach, new Florida coach Billy Napier was the wide receivers coach and Michigan State coach Tucker was the defensive backs coach. Oregon hired Georgia defensive coordinator Dan Lanning as head coach Saturday, completing a search for Mario Cristobal's replacement that took less than a week. Cristobal was hired away from Oregon by Miami on Monday. Five days later, the Ducks landed on the 35-year-old Lanning, who will be a first-time head coach after spending the last four years at Georgia, the previous three leading one of the best defenses in the country.
