Oregon suffered its worst loss since 1985 thanks to Utah's 62-20 rout in Eugene. Arizona couldn't contain Paul Perkins and UCLA in its 56-30 loss. While Week 1 had its struggles, Week 4 definitely showed that Pac-12 has several playoff and national title contenders.

10 Florida successfully converted all five of its attempts on fourth down, including the game-winning touchdown, against rival Tennessee. Will Grier threw a 63-yard touchdown to receiver Antonio Callaway on a 4th-and-14 play to comeback and win 28-27 in Gainesville. The Gators have been perfect on fourth-down this season and while six other schools are also perfect, none have come close to Florida's 10-for-10 rate, which is the best in FBS. 

12 Nick Chubb recorded his 12th straight game with at least 100 rushing yards in Georgia's win 48-6 over Southern. The sophomore running back tied the record set by Heisman winner Herschel Walker from 1980-1981. Chubb can be in sole position of the record if he rushes for 100 yards against an Alabama team that has the No. 4 rushing defense in the country.

105 While Michigan's offense scored 31 points, the Wolverines' defense should receive credit for the shutout win over formerly-ranked BYU. Michigan held Tanner Mangum and the Cougars to just 105 yards of total offense. It was the first time since 2012 that BYU failed to surpass 200 yards of offense. But that's not the Wolverines did: their defense didn't allow BYU to cross their 40-yard line and allowed only four third-down conversions on 15 attempts.

557 Cincinnati freshman QB Hayden Moore set a program record with 557 passing yards in the Bearcats' loss to Memphis. Moore broke the previous record (554 yards) set by Greg Cook against Ohio more than 47 years ago.The freshman completed 31 of his 53 passing attempts (fifth-most in school history) and threw for four touchdowns and a pair of interceptions.
