The Associated Press will delay the release of its college football poll until Monday so voters can take into account the Georgia-South Carolina game that was postponed because of Hurricane Matthew.

The AP Top 25 is usually released Sunday at 1 p.m. CST.

The Bulldogs (3-2) and Gamecocks (2-3) were originally scheduled to play Saturday afternoon in Columbia, South Carolina. With the storm looming, the Southeastern Conference announced Thursday that the game would be played Sunday at 2:30 p.m. ET.

Neither team is ranked, but Georgia was among the other teams receiving votes.

The Bulldogs received 42 points in last week's poll.

The AP Top 25 will be published at 1:30 p.m. CST Monday.
