After an exciting week of college football, the Associated Press released their top 25 poll for Week 4. While Alabama remained on top as the No. 1 team in the country, there were a few notable shifts among the rest of the list.
The biggest trend upward is Louisville. The Cardinals absolutely crushed the Florida State Seminoles 63-20. Louisville scored at least two touchdowns in every quarter as sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson registered 362 total yards and five touchdowns. Louisville moved up from No. 10 to No. 3 while the Seminoles dropped from No. 22 down to No. 13. Florida State will likely be out for redemption next week against South Florida.
The Nebraska Huskers rode a 14-point third quarter to a 35-32 win over the Oregon Ducks and have now gotten into the top 25, coming in at No. 20.
Ole Miss fell from No. 19 to No. 23 after a 48-43 loss to top-ranked Crimson Tide. Alabama racked up 31 points in the second half to secure the victory.
Notre Dame fell out of the poll after a 36-28 loss to eighth-ranked Michigan Sate. The Fighting Irish made a comeback attempt with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but ultimately came up short.
Iowa also feel out of the poll after coming in at No. 13 in Week 3. Their 23-21 loss to North Dakota State became the game to watch on Saturday. Trailing 21-14 at the half, the Bison scored a touchdown and went for the lead with a two-point conversion, but couldn’t get it done. After completely suffocating Iowa on the ensuing drive, North Dakota State managed to kick a last-second field goal to secure an upset victory.
