College Football Rankings And Picks: Week 4

We had another solid weekend of college football. For me, the game that stood out was the #pac12afterdark showdown between Washington State and UCLA. Anthony Gordon somehow threw NINE touchdowns and lost.

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

Week 4 Picks

If The CFP Happened Today…

It looks like I am the only voter that truly values what teams have done on the field. Everyone else clearly just regurgitates what the media is feeding them.

Heisman Picks

#1 Joe Burrow – QB – LSU

  • Joe “Freakin” Burrow
  • 1,520 YDS and 17 TD

Final Week Three Thoughts

  • Buzz: Sam Ehlinger and the Texas Longhorns were clutch in a few key situations to come away with that win against Oklahoma State. I was pulling for Notre Dame towards the end of their game at Georgia – even with a loss they still have a chance at a playoff spot later on.
  • Chamby: #pac12afterdark
  • Tommy Nuggets: Meh.
  • Stormin’ Mormon: 2-2 through 4 games ain’t half bad for BYU.
  • Klyde Frog: Pac-12 after dark never disappoints! Chip Kelly is a magician.

Wrap Up

We have a pretty lame weekend of games coming up. Keep your fingers crossed for some upsets.
