Goz’s College Football Top 25 Rankings (Week 4)
For the third consecutive season,I will be providing my own personal Top 25 poll each week during the college football season. My poll philosophy all season long will remain the same and that is by ranking the teams I believe are the best twenty-five best in the country following that given week’s games. Below are my rankings and comments about each week’ biggest shake-up and changes. Do you agree or disagree? Let me know below or on Twitter @TomGozz
- Ohio State
- Virginia Tech
- Notre Dame
- Penn State
- West Virginia
- Mississippi State
- Oklahoma State
- Texas A&M
- Boston College
- Michigan State
Is this an all-time great Alabama team?- Is there a more September college football story line question than "Is this Nick Saban's team yet at Alabama?". We ask it every September after the Crimson Tide blow a team out. But seriously.... are they that good? This team has quite possibly the quarterback since Coach Nick Saban took over. Besides Georgia, the SEC may actually be setting up for a down year. All time best? Not quite. But maybe... let's see what October brings.
Wisconsin college football playoff changes done? Not quite. The Badgers lost a non-conference to BYU. As ESPN's Scott Van Pelt likes to say BYU has "adults playing defense". The Badgers can still go undefeated and with a undefeated SEC and ACC likely to take 2 spots, a 1 loss team still has a chance to get in, especially from a Power 5 conference.
Where have you gone big games? I know Texas A&M vs Alabama is on the schedule and it may be big in the SEC, but after my discussion about the Crimson Tide above, the Aggies will have a tough task ahead of them. Stanford @ Oregon is where College Gameday will be. Stanford's Bryce Love has been disappointing early on and the Ducks have beaten these 3 teams so far: Portland State, San Jose State and Bowling Green. Hopefully there is a big upset somewhere else this week in college football.
