Week 4 of the 2020 college football season was the start of the SEC play and its 10-game schedule and it didn’t disappoint.
In the fourth week of the season, two major upsets had major implications on the College Football Playoff. The Kansas State Wildcats shocked the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners once again 38-35 in Norman. Last season, the Wildcats upset the fifth-ranked Sooners which made it difficult for Oklahoma to make it to the playoff.
The most shocking upset of the week was Mississippi State’s 44-34 win over the No. 6 LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge. The Bulldogs were able to win with the fast development of the air-raid offense. LSU was never really able to recover from their significant offseason departures in Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback in Joe Burrow and key assistants in Dave Aranda and Joe Brady.
These losses play a huge role in which of the top four teams are going to the projected teams for the College Football Playoff in a chaotic 2020 season.
With the way that teams are falling left to right, there might be two teams from the same conference in the playoff for the first time since the 2017 season. This is also a great opportunity for a Group of Five programs to make its case for the playoff.
Here are the projected top four teams after Week 4.
