College Football Rankings And Picks: Week 4

It was quite the dud of a weekend for college football last week. There were no major matchups and not many games to look forward to. The most excitement came from the BYU and USC overtime game. Outside of that…kind of a meh weekend.

Many contributors to Hefty Headlines were invited to participate in our Week 3 poll. Once again, we had five people respond…for the fourth week in a row:

Hefty Headlines Top 25 Poll : Week 3

The Clemson Tigers remain at the top of our poll, followed by the Crimson Tide of Alabama. There is now only a 1 point difference in voting between the #1 and #2 teams. LSU remains as the #3 team. BYU once again jumps – from an unranked to #18. Partly because of their overtime win against last week’s #23 team USC – partly because of the rogue #1 vote they received. The biggest drop in rankings is awarded to #21 Texas A&M – who fell 8 spots. We also have #23 Virginia, #24 Cal, and #25 TCU showing up in our rankings for the first time.
