Best week 4 college football games
Folks, it was a Saturday for the ages. It was a college football Saturday, and therefore the best Saturday there has been—until next Saturday, when college football will once again rush and tumble and leap across our TV screens.
We saw some epic games. If you have DISH, you saw them exactly how you wanted to. Maybe you watched four of the 3:30 games at the same time in Sports Bar Mode. Maybe you watched on your phone with DISH Anywhere while you were at a family barbecue. No judgment! You have to watch college football while you can.
Drama, Destruction, Collapse
If you were watching last week, you were duly rewarded. There was drama: #24 Florida beat #23 Tennessee on a 63-yard hail mary pass in the final seconds of the fourth quarter. The #5 Trojans of USC beat Texas 27-24 in double overtime. And UCLA took its momentum coming off two surprise wins and crashed mightily into Memphis. The lead went back and forth into the fourth quarter until the Tigers prevailed 48-45. Memphis has now entered the rankings at #24. This is why you always watch to the end.
In addition to drama, there was wanton destruction and plain collapse. Clemson just walked all over Louisville, for example. They won 47-21, and now the Tigers are ranked #2. Meanwhile, Mississippi State made it look easy against LSU, winning 37-7. That was unexpected. The Bulldogs make their debut at #15 in the rankings. The TCU Horned Frogs wrangled the SMU Mustangs 56-36. And Penn State beat Georgia State 56-0, because why not.
