Week Four Power Rankings (NCAA)

1. Alabama Crimson Tide– Another week, 50 points were scored and another victory. Their win last week was against Ole Miss, a team they’ve struggled against over the years but they handled business. The debates at this point just need to stop. Tua is the starter! If it ain’t broke, try to fix it! This is hands down the best offensive Nick Saban has had and each championship team, the defense was always the strength and carried the team. Now, the offense has handled its business and I can’t wait to see how long they can continue to produce and score points. They welcome Jimbo Fisher and the Texas A&M Aggies to Bear-Bryant Stadium for an interesting SEC West showdown.

2. Georgia Bulldogs– The SEC is basically composed of two teams and that’s Alabama and these Georgia Bulldogs. Many were curious about how they’d be after last year and would they suffer a hangover from their appearance in the national title game in January. I haven’t seen any and Kirby has done a great job of keeping this team focused. The defense is quicker than last year’s unit and that shows they have a ton of athleticism. They will continue to keep rolling and I see no team in their division taking them down. It will have to be a team from the SEC West.

3. Ohio State Buckeyes– Last Saturday was a big-time win for them over TCU in a true road game at JerryWorld in Dallas. If you aren’t sold on Dwayne Haskins yet, I will need for you to watch the game film of his start last weekend. When the team fell behind the few times they did, he never folded and kept his composure. He went 24-38 and threw for 344 yards in the air, J.K. Dobbins added 121 yards rushing and the defense made big plays to help seal the deal. The only loss they suffered was the injury of Nick Bosa who will be out for a few games. The Buckeyes will get Urban Meyer back after serving his three-game suspension.

4. Clemson Tigers– They’ll need to figure out their quarterback situation out soon. Alabama figured theirs out, so why can’t they? They’ve been good this year and I think if they want to make a nice run when the crucial part of the season comes around, they will need to start Trevor Lawrence at quarterback and if you watch the Clemson offense with him under center, things seem to just fall into place when he’s on the field and the offense looks a bit more potent. They begin ACC play against the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech today.

5. Oklahoma Sooners– They almost gave their game up last week against the Iowa State Cyclones, but the heroics of Kyler Murray came through in the clutch for them. He threw for 348 yards and three touchdown passes and also added 77 yards rushing. Just when I thought the Sooners defense was turning the page, they struggle and give up 447 yards to the Cyclones. They kept it together and won their 17th straight game away from Norman.
