The college football schedule didn't feature any ranked matchups in Week 3, but that changed drastically on Saturday with a feast of six games between ranked teams on the Week 4 slate. Though it didn't necessarily deliver any of the jarring upsets that give the sport its magic, a jam-packed day of college football did give fans some frantic finishes involving teams ranked in the AP Top 25.
No game Saturday had a larger billing than the No. 6 Ohio State at No. 9 Notre Dame, and the AP Top 10 matchup met the hype as the Buckeyes secured a walk-off 17-14 victory with a touchdown run with one second left on the clock. Pullman, Washington, was the site of another compelling ranked matchup as No. 21 Washington State edged out No. 14 Oregon State, 38-35, in a battle of the Pac-12's only continuing members beyond the 2023 season.
Drama didn't accompany every top-25 showdown, however. No. 10 Oregon derailed the Deion Sanders hype train with a 42-6 shellacking of No. 19 Colorado, and No. 24 Iowa had zero answers for No. 7 Penn State in a 31-0 Nittany Lions victory.
And while teams such as No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Michigan, and No. 3 Texas had no problems against unranked competition, that wasn't the case for all. No. 4 Florida State needed overtime to defeat Clemson for its first win in the series since 2014. No. 12 LSU trailed Arkansas at home by as much as 10 before winning on a late field goal. Even No. 5 USC found itself up just a touchdown late against Arizona State before pulling away for a 42-28 win.
CBS Sports was with you every step of the way as the action unfolded. Highlights, game notes and more are below as Week 4 winds down and the focus prepares to shift to Week 5.
