NCAA FBS Rankings Week 4:

  1. Georgia 3-0 (SEC): The Bulldogs beat South Carolina 48-7 and are clearly playing like the best team in the nation.
  2. Alabama 3-0 (SEC): Alabama dominated UL Monroe 63-7 last week. The Crimson Tide continue to dominate against non Power 5 conference schools, in a way no other team does.
  3. USC 3-0 (Pac-12): USC closed out Fresno State 45-17. The Trojans have dominated every game they are in thus far, and given how good Rice has been the last two weeks, it appears that USC are much better than we thought.
  4. Ohio State 3-0 (Big Ten): The Buckeyes finally came out fully against a good team. Ohio State won 77-21 against Toledo.
  5. Clemson 3-0 (ACC): Clemson won 48-20 against Louisana Tech and improved their previous bad play they had suffered against Furman a week before.
  6. Oklahoma 3-0 (Big 12): Oklahoma won against Nebraska 49-14.
  7. Michigan 3-0 (Big Ten): Michigan beat Colorado State 51-7, Hawaii 56-10, and now UCONN 59-0.
  8. Oklahoma State 3-0 (Big 12): Oklahoma State won 63-7 against Arkasas Pine Bluff. The Cowboys have a real test next week with Baylor.
  9. Washington 3-0 (Pac-12): Washington defeated Michigan State 39-28. The Huskies are really good so far this season, and will have another chance for a good win against Stanford next week.
  10. Kentucky 3-0 (SEC): Kentucky continues to impress with a 31-0 win over FCS Youngstown State.
  11. Oregon State 3-0 (Pac-12): Oregon State beat one of FCS best teams last season, Montana State, 68-28. The Beavers also have beaten Boise State and Fresno State.
  12. Tennessee 3-0 (SEC): Tennessee defeated Akron 63-6. But, their undefeated season looks to be in jeopardy when they play at home to Florida this week.
  13. Ole Miss 3-0 (SEC): Ole Miss has continued to improve with each game. They went from struggling against Troy with an eventual comfortable win, 28-10, to defeating Georgia Tech this past week, 42-0.
  14. Arkansas 3-0 (SEC): Arkansas has won a lot of closer games this season, and they have been good wins. However, the Razorbacks struggled last week against the FCS Missouri State Bears, in a 38-27 win.
  15. Oregon 2-1 (Pac-12): Oregon defeated a really good BYU team, 41-20. The Ducks might have lost to Georgia very badly, but have sense improved greatly.

  21. Florida 2-1 (SEC): Florida has played in close games in each of these games. They defeated South Florida 31-28 last week. This week will be a difficult away game against Tennessee.
  22. Utah 2-1 (Pac-12): Utah won 35-7 against San Diego State.
  23. Wake Forrest 3-0 (ACC): Wake Forrest defeated undefeated Liberty last week, 37-36.
