Some notes on what all went down in Week 4:
TCU appears to be the rising power in the Big 12. The Horned Frogs had a strong showing against the Cowboys yesterday and now fans are circling 11/11 on the calendar in anticipation of a showdown with the Sooners,
UGA: Last night the Dawgs put together a complete game that dominated the visitors from Starkville. Now they head to Knoxville to face off against a Volunteer team that is in crisis mode, if not a full collapse. They'll be their biggest competitor now as yesterday's win makes the remaining schedule look paltry. Keeping consistent down the stretch puts them on a collision course with Alabama to compete for a playoff spot.
FSU: The Seminoles have yet to win a game this year. Having lost the opener to Bama, a postponement due to Hurricane Irma, and dropping one to NC State yesterday, a team that looked to be a title contender will struggle to find a major bowl with 4 ranked teams still remaining on the schedule.
Tennessee:This is a team, as mentioned above, in full crisis, if not complete collapse. Struggling for a home win against UMass is not the way to warm up for what is likely the best defense in college football coming to town next weekend. The Volunteers are in the trashcan themselves now. Expect major changes to be announced in Knoxville soon.
Auburn: The Tigers needed a big win yesterday and they got it. The trouble is, Missouri is in worse shape than Tennessee. There is a lot of pressure mounting on Coach Gus Malzahn, which seems unfair for a good coach and an all around decent human being. But the faithful are frustrated on The Plains. They need to carry this momentum into this week as they prepare to host MSU who will be looking to rebound from that manhandling by UGA.
There are some big games to take a look at this week. Check back soon for our Week Five commentary!
