College Football Rankings: 1 To 131 After Week 4

College football rankings from CollegeFootballNews.com from 1 to 131 after Week 4

College Football News 2022 college football rankings after Week 4 for all 131 teams with results and who’s up next week.


[mm-video type=playlist id=01f1343a1wt7q817p7 player_id=none image=https://collegefootballnews.com/wp-content/plugins/mm-video/images/playlist-icon.png]

It’s our motto with the college football rankings that we try to never stray from: respect the results.

That’s a problem now.

Really, Tulane should be ranked ahead of Kansas State, who should be ranked ahead of Oklahoma, but Tulane just lost to Southern Miss, who lost to …

It doesn’t work.

Just trust us when we say we get it. There are a lot of insane inconsistencies and wild moves, especially for some teams that were great this weekend and should’ve moved up.

All of the bizarre upsets and twists in a fun start to the college football season changed up everything.

For example, do we think Texas A&M and Oklahoma would beat James Madison? Almost certainly. Would we pick the Aggies and Sooners over the Dukes? Yeah.

Is James Madison unbeaten after beating the Appalachian State team that beat Texas A&M a few weeks ago in College Station? Yeah. Did it destroy the Middle Tennessee team that just trucked Miami? Yeah.

To get this ultra-pretentious ramble there faster, it’s simple. Some – not all – of the unbeatens get a ton of respect in the Week 4 college football rankings.

This will all get cleared up over the next few weeks as more results come in, so PLEASE don’t get into too much of a twist if your team was impressive on Saturday but dropped; that meant other parts of the overall puzzle changed.

With all of that in mind, here are the wacky and wild Week 4 college football rankings.

Oklahoma vs Kansas State Game Preview

Why Kansas State Will Win

What the heck was that?

Where was the Kansas State that dominated Missouri and looked like it was about to make a big run in the Big 12? That could still happen – it was a 17-10 loss to Tulane that obviously doesn’t matter in Big 12 play – and now the running game has to get working again.

The offense isn’t screwing up with just two turnovers and minimal penalties so far, the defense has been terrific on third downs – it’s third in the nation in passing efficiency defense – and overall the team is +5 in turnover margin.

Yes, Oklahoma has been great over the first three weeks, but it hasn’t actually played anyone with a pulse.

UTEP, Kent State, and yeah, Nebraska. Kansas State represents a massive step up in competition, but …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Oklahoma Will Win

What do you do against inferior competition? You drill them in easy games that get everything sharpened up for what’s coming.

Oklahoma has been close to flawless to start the Brent Venables era. It’s not the flashy team of the Lincoln Riley era, but the defense has been nasty and there hasn’t been a hint of drama so far.

One turnover. The Sooners lost a fumble against Nebraska, and like Kansas State, penalties aren’t an issue.

The pass rush and defensive front should be able to live in the Wildcat backfield, the run defense that’s allowing 2.8 yards per carry should be solid, and considering there’s little to no passing game to worry about, the secondary should be able to cheat up enough to make a difference.

Week 4 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Kansas State has a funky style that could make this interesting.

It’s not going to screw up, and it’s going to hold the ball for over 35 minutes. However, the OU defense is playing well, there’s absolutely no downfield passing attack coming from Martinez, and the balance of the Sooner offensive O should be too much to overcome.

Texas vs Texas Tech Game Preview

Why Texas Will Win

That was a dangerous landmine Texas just sidestepped.

UTSA is a solid team, the Longhorns were banged up and coming off the heartbreaking loss to Alabama, and everything appeared set up for a massive letdown. Instead, this team showed it might really be different.

Hudson Card was fine with Quinn Ewers out, Bijan Robinson went off – 183 yards and three touchdowns on a hurt ankle – and everything went fine in the 41-20 win. And why?

The defense.

The running game rolled for almost 300 yards, but the biggest difference this year is a Texas D that’s actually tackling people. The overall stats might not be great, but it’s only allowing 17 points per game, the pass defense has been good enough, and yeah, the offense has been good through the injuries.

Texas Tech’s offense hasn’t kicked in yet. The line hasn’t been great, the seven turnovers in the last two games are too many, and …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Texas Tech Will Win

There’s going to be a learning curve, but eventually the O will work.

It hasn’t been the Western Kentucky high-octane attack of 2021 – that’s what it’s supposed to be under offensive coordinator Zach Kittley – but the passing game has been okay, there’s just enough of a running game to do something, and things should be far better once the turnovers slow down.

The biggest difference, though, is the defense. It shut down the Houston running game and kept NC State to just 270 yards in last week’s 27-14 loss – the four turnovers by the O did the team in.

The run D is the second best in the Big 12, the passing attack leads the conference – even if, again, it’s not going ballistic – and Texas is going to have to work in more of a grind than it might like.

Week 4 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Texas Tech has enough of a pass rush to be a bother, and the run defense so far has been terrific. That might be enough to keep this close. It also helps that the Texas D doesn’t take the ball away in bunches.

Quinn Ewers is at least expected to dress for the game, but Texas will win on another solid day from Robinson and a great performance from a pass defense that will hold up throughout.

It’ll be a fight, though.

TCU vs SMU Game Preview

Why TCU Will Win

If it’s possible to be totally rested and ready to roll in Week 4 of the season, that’s TCU.

It started out with a layup win over a horrible Colorado team, got a scrimmage against Tarleton State, and then it got two weeks off to get ready for the 30 mile trip on I-30 to deal with the Mustangs.

The Horned Frogs had no problem whatsoever in the first two games under Sonny Dykes. The passing game rolled two weeks ago, the running game averaged over nine yards per carry in Boulder, and the defense was fine.

QB Chandler Morris is still out, but Max Duggan is more than good enough to handle the starting work. As long as the turnovers are kept to a bare minimum, all should be fine.

SMU has a turnover problem – eight so far – the run defense has been shaky, and the Rhett Lashlee offense doesn’t care a lick about controlling the clock. But …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why SMU Will Win

There’s a flip side to only playing two games so far and getting all the rest TCU has had – there’s a chance SMU is sharper.

Yes, turnovers have been an issue with eight so far, but the defense has made up for it with taking it away multiple times in each of the three games. The offense is working – it’s tenth in the nation in passing yards and 12th overall in total O – and it’s going to be the toughest test for the TCU defense by far.

Tanner Mordecai needs to be a bit more accurate – he’s not hitting the 60% mark – but he’s spreading it around well, has ten touchdown passes, and is more than experienced enough to handle the moment against the Big 12 team.

It has only been two games, but TCU hasn’t cranked up the pass rush yet. Give Mordecai time and there’s going to be a problem.

Week 4 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

SMU will bring the offense, but TCU will get the ground game going enough to control the clock and the tempo.

For all of the good things the Mustang offense does, the inability to deal with the time of possession battle – it just doesn’t care – is going to be taxing on the D. TCU will be balanced, the rest defense will be solid, and it’ll be a good win before diving into the Big 12 season.

Kansas vs Duke Game Preview

Why Duke Will Win

It’s going to get lost in the national narrative, but Duke is unbeaten, too.

What are the Blue Devils doing that’s so right under new head coach Mike Elko? Riley Leonard and the passing game have been accurate and consistent, the running game has been every bit as strong for a balanced offense, and the defense is generating plenty of takeaways.

The offense has only given up two interceptions, and the defense has forced seven turnovers including a massive game-sealer to take out Northwestern.

And yeah, Kansas is playing well, but the defense isn’t doing anything to stop a third down attempt, the running game has to work to pull this off, and the secondary is extremely vulnerable.

West Virginia and Houston combined to hit 70% of their throws, and Duke will at least get to the mark.

But …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Kansas Will Win

Seriously, Kansas? Who put the quarter in you?

This is a fabulously coached team that doesn’t turn the ball over, doesn’t get flagged, and it’s maximizing all of part to pull off incredible road wins over West Virginia and Houston.

The offensive line has been a killer – it has yet to allow a sack.

The running game has been wonderful – it averages over seven yards per carry – only Minnesota is better at converting its third down chances, and there’s been zero flinch in this bunch.

Duke will get its offensive moving, and it won’t matter. Kansas will methodically roll back down the field.

What’s Going To Happen

Will Kansas keep all of the mistakes to a minimum? If Duke can force a few turnovers, the formula changes.

This will be a blast of a high-scoring game. Duke won’t be able to stop the Kansas running game, Kansas won’t be able to stop the Duke passing game, and in the end, the home team’s offense will work just a wee bit better.

West Virginia vs Virginia Tech Game Preview

Why West Virginia Will Win

West Virginia deserves a better record than 1-2.

JT Daniels is playing well, the offense is moving, the offensive line is great, the attack is 11th in the nation in scoring and 13th in total yards per game, and really, the defense is far better than it looked against Kansas two weeks ago.

The stats might not be there, but the Mountaineers have the defensive front to hold up against a relatively punchless Virginia Tech offense. However, the D hasn’t done much to take the ball away so far. That has to change.

Virginia Tech gave it up five times in the opener against Old Dominion, and hasn’t given it up since. Be +2 in turnover margin, pull off the upset.

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Virginia Tech Will Win

The Hokies stopped with the mistakes, and everything changed.

Along with stopping the turnovers, they’ve been flagged just ten times after getting hit with 15 penalties against ODU.

The running game isn’t coming up with big bursts, but it’s getting enough production to get by. The run defense has been a brick wall allowing 1.5 yards per carry, that’s leading to a slew of third-and-long situations, and that’s partly why this is one of the best Ds in America on third downs, allowing teams to convert just 17% of their chances.

On the flip side, for all of the positives on the West Virginia defense, it’s not coming up with third down stops, the team has its own penalty and turnover concerns, and …

Week 4 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

JT Daniels along with the West Virginia running game will be too much.

Yes, Virginia Tech’s defense has been incredible so far. Yes, it currently ranks among the best in the nation. And yes, Old Dominion, Boston College, and Wofford don’t have the attacks the Mountaineers are bringing into town.

There won’t be the problems like there were against Old Dominion, but Hokie QB Grant Wells will throw a few picks, Daniels will get just enough time to work, and the West Virginia will keep clawing its way back into the season.
