Some of college football's usual powers have stumbled a bit out of the gate in 2021. No. 9 Clemson and No. 10 Ohio State have already been handed a loss. No. 1 Alabama, No. 4 Oklahoma and No. 12 Notre Dame, meanwhile, have all had at least one big scare.

Top Week 4 college football expert predictions
One of Sallee's top college football picks for Week 4: Sallee likes Notre Dame to stay within the 6.5-point spread against Wisconsin when the teams meet at Soldier Field in Chicago at noon ET.
A big x-factor in this matchup is Notre Dame quarterback Jack Coan, a transfer from Wisconsin. The Badgers know him well, but Sallee thinks that his knowledge of the Wisconsin defense should serve the Fighting Irish well.
Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton is perhaps the most talented player in this matchup, and he should prevent Wisconsin from stretching the field. Sallee sees Note Dame then shutting down Wisconsin's rushing attack and keeping this game at least within the spread.
"I know that Notre Dame has been one of the most disappointing 3-0 teams in the country so far, but it still has plenty of power," Sallee told SportsLine.
