College Football Rankings: 1 To 130: Week 4. And Now We Start Over

By

College Football News 2021 college football rankings after Week 4 for all 130 teams with results and who’s up next week.


It’s time to blow it all up.

We’re four – and a little more – weeks into the season, and now we have something to work with in the rankings.

For now, we have to respect the results no matter what.

Throw out all of the preconceived notions and preseason rankings. Forget the uniforms, the talent levels, the brand names, and everything else that goes into the rankings and start over.

This will change up in a huge way once we return to a sense of normalcy – think of these like the tie-breakers in conference races. If team A beats team B, then if team C blah blah blah. Basically, look at the schedules and who won what.

Until there are any other variables involved, again, FOR NOW, you must have pockets of rankings like this …

UTSA, then Memphis, then Mississippi State, then NC State, then Clemson. And if that wasn’t weird enough …

Wyoming, then Northern Illinois, then Georgia Tech, then North Carolina, then Virginia.

And because that doesn’t seem totally insane, there’s the Bowling Green thing.

Unbeaten South Alabama has to be ranked higher than Bowling Green, who has to be ranked higher than Minnesota, who has to be ranked higher than Colorado – and thanks, rankings gods, for Texas A&M pulling out that win over Colorado two weeks ago or this really gets screwy.

Of course we have to also give credit where credit is due. For example, blowing out Texas looks a whole lot better now for Arkansas than it did when it happened, and beating Texas A&M is impressive no matter what.

Again, and this can’t be emphasized enough, these will change wildly as we go. But if we’re doing this right, and if we’re giving full credit where credit is due, here are the rankings of all 130 college football teams after the first month of the season.
