Every now and then, particularly at the beginning of the season before the meat of conference play, there is a week where the Top 25 slate is lacking in drama. With just one single-digit spread on the slate of CBSSports.com Expert Picks, it seems like Week 4 is that week.

But the fun in picking against-the-spread means that winners -- our straight up selections are nearly unanimous for all six experts -- just have to cover the number. Tom and Jerry join me once again to debate and defend our Expert Picks and preview some of the biggest games ahead in Week 4.

Games covered in the podcast (in order of appearance):

Michigan State at No. 22 Notre Dame (-7.5)

No. 23 Arizona State at No. 5 Stanford (-7.5)

Tennessee at No. 19 Florida (-14.5)

Auburn at No. 6 LSU (-16.5)

Florida A&M at No. 4 Ohio State (-49.5)

No. 3 Clemson at NC State (+14.5)

Utah at BYU (-7)

Boise State at Fresno State (-3.5)
