BSL Deified Dozen: 2019 College Football Week 4 Poll
Week 4 is done, and we are beginning to see who are the contenders and pretenders of the 2019 college football season. Each week during the season our panel of experts will rank the Top 12 teams in college football. This season our panel includes: Rob Shields, Mike Lowe, Zack Kiesel, Brian (Pedro Cerrano) McGuire, Chris (Ricker Says) Ricker, Steve Birrer, and Chris Stoner. We are looking forward to another exciting season of college football and race to the College Football Playoff.
Week 4 saw a couple members of our poll drop out as their weaknesses were exposed against tougher competition. Utah and Michigan both bit the dust on the road against USC and Wisconsin, respectively. Wisconsin was barely outside the Dozen, so as you can imagine their impressive win vaulted them up to #8, pretty high for a first-time appearance. Texas also made their return thanks to the above mentioned losses. Notre Dame put up a good fight at #3 Georgia, and that was enough to keep them in, while Georgia wasn’t quite impressive enough to move up.
Three of our Dozen have byes in Week 5, and there aren’t what figure to be too many tough matchups for the others. Notre Dame does have to return home and face Virginia, who are ranked as high as #18 in some Top 25 polls. Keep an eye on the Wisconsin’s game against Northwestern, in case the Badgers are primed for a letdown. Same goes for #7 Auburn when they face Mississippi State. And depending on which Maryland team decides to show up, #11 Penn State could be in for a surprise Friday night in College Park.
