Sports Minute: Here is the latest Georgia sports news from The Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Number 7 Georgia and Number 9 TCU jumped into the top 10 of The Associated Press college football poll for the first time this season and Florida State fell out of the rankings for the first time since 2011. Alabama remained Number 1 this week and won back some of the votes it lost to Number 2 Clemson.

DETROIT (AP) - Former Bulldogs QB Matthew Stafford's pass to Golden Tate was ruled just short of the goal line in the final seconds and Atlanta held on for a 30-26 win over the Detroit Lions. Stafford threw a slant to Tate and a video review determined he was down just inside the 1 with 8 seconds left. That overruled the original call and 10 seconds were run off the clock. That ended the game because the Lions didn't have any timeouts. The defending NFC champion Falcons overcame Matt Ryan's three interceptions at Ford Field.

ATLANTA (AP) - Nick Pivetta outpitched Luiz Gohara in a matchup of rookies, Mikael Franco homered to break up a scoreless tie and the Philadelphia Phillies beat Atlanta 2-0. The game was the last home contest for the Braves in their first season at SunTrust Park. Pivetta threw six innings, allowing five hits and one walk with four strikeouts.

ATLANTA (AP) - Hector Villalba and Jeff Larentowicz each scored, Brad Guzan had his second straight shutout, and Atlanta beat the Montreal Impact 2-0 Sunday to extend United's home unbeaten streak to 12 games. Atlanta moved into third in Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference.

ATLANTA (AP) - Justin Thomas captured the $10 million FedEx Cup by finishing second at the PGA Tour Championship yesterday. Thomas earned five victories this year, including his first major at the PGA Championship. Xander Schauffele (SHOW'-flee) sank a three-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the tournament by one shot over Thomas.
