Here’s the best of the rest for Week 4 in college football. On Thursday I gave you four interesting games. there are many others. Here are a few more games in College Football Week 4 to keep an eye on. These games could later affect the college football playoffs.
College Football Week 4 Primetime: Boston College, Florida, Saturday 8 p.m. ACC Network
In their first home game since Aug. 27, the Seminoles (3-0) will attempt to start a season with four straight wins for the first time since 2015 when Atlantic Coast Conference opponents Boston College (1-2) , visited Tallahassee on Saturday. Quarterback Jordan Travis, defensive end Jared Verse, left tackle Robert Scott Jr. and defensive tackle Malcolm Ray are all listed on this week’s depth chart after leaving with injuries — or rated — following last Friday’s 35-31 win in Louisville became. BC has not won in Tallahassee since 2008. FSU has an all-time 14-5 record in the series and has won three straight.
Maryland at (4) Michigan, Saturday noon ET Fox
Michigan has scored at least 50 points in each of their first 3 games of the season. On Saturday, the Wolverines are looking to tally 50+ points in 4 straight games for the second time in program history. They had a 5-game streak in 1903. Also, Michigan is looking to join 1904 Minnesota as the only Big Ten team to score 50+ points in each of the first 4 games of a season.
(7) USC in the state of Oregon, Saturday 9:30 a.m. ET Pac-12 Network
Ridiculous that ESPN picked Utah in the pathetic state of Arizona as a late game, but it is what it is.
Caleb Williams’ Heisman stock continues to climb. The USC QB now has the second lowest chance (+350) of winning the trophy, behind only Ohio State’s CJ Stroud (+275). In January, Williams had the fourth-lowest rate at +900. Alabama QB Bryce Young now has the third-lowest odds at +425. The Trojans have scored over 40 points in each of their first 3 games this season. They’ve never done that in the first 4 games of a season in program history.
Vanderbilt in (2) Alabama, 7:30 am ET on the SEC network
Vanderbilt is seeking its first win on the field against Alabama since 1984 (the Commodores have a win in their record book after the Crimson Tide lost their 17-6 win in 1993). Alabama’s 22-game on-field winning streak against Vanderbilt is the longest winning streak against a single opponent in program history (it had 22 consecutive wins against Mississippi State from 1958 to 1979).
Vanderbilt has already won three games this season, surpassing their totals from the previous two seasons combined. The Commodores are still trying to pull off a 21-game losing streak against SEC opponents, which is the fifth-longest
Conference losing streak in SEC history.
