CBS Sports has updated their power rankings ahead of a huge Week 4 in college football.

First, the most exciting matchup from Week 3 took place at College Station, with Texas A&M playing host to Miami. Ultimately, it was the Aggies that prevailed in a low-scoring affair, giving Texas A&M a big bounce back win while handing Miami its first loss of the Mario Cristobal era. 

Additionally, BYU also hit the road for a trip to Oregon, and the Ducks again looked impressive with a convincing 41-20 victory over the Cougars.

Now, Week 4 brings a bevy of exciting showdowns, headlined by an SEC matchup between Florida and Tennessee. The Gators will travel to Neyland Stadium to take on the Volunteers in a game with his implications, and College GameDay will be their prior to feed on the energy.

Additionally, Arkansas and Texas A&M are both in need of a victory, but it’ll have to come at the other’s expense. While there’s a lot of love between Sam Pittman and Jimbo Fisher, there’ll be no sympathy for the other on Saturday.

Finally, the ACC will have their eyes on the showdown between Clemson and Wake Forest, as the Tigers will be looking to keep their College Football Playoff dream alive against the Demon Deacons. Dabo Swinney’s team is on a mission, but Sam Hartman and company will be trying to derail them.

Regardless of the exciting matchups on Saturday’s slate, here’s CBS Sports’ power rankings ahead of the showdowns in Week 4.
