After just missing our playoff field last week, the Wolverines jump back into the Top 4 after pounding Penn State 49-10 in Ann Arbor. Michigan racked up 326 yards and six touchdowns on the ground as it manhandled a beat up Nittany Lions defense. Jim Harbaugh's club now has a huge showdown next week, as No. 8 Wisconsin visits.
As expected, Louisville crushed Marshall in Week 4, winning 59-28 behind another incredible performance behind QB Lamar Jackson. How explosive have the Cardinals been? The 59 points scored is the LOWEST total of the season for them. Jackson now has 25 total touchdowns through four games. Next week, Louisville has a chance to take a huge step in winning the ACC by visiting No. 5 Clemson.
Ohio State (3-0)
The Buckeyes were off in Week 4 and remain in the No. 2 position after their dominant Week 3 win at Oklahoma. They get Rutgers and Indiana at home in the next two weeks before going on the road to Wisconsin.
Alabama was the clear-cut No. 1 yet again after the Tide dominated Kent State 48-0 in Week 4. Bama is a little banged up, particularly in the backfield, but in Damien Harris' absence it say true freshman Joshua Jacobs step up and rush for 97 yards and two TDs on 11 carries. The Tide get Kentucky at home next week before going to Arkansas.
