It’s that time of the college football season. All of the exciting conference games are just around the corner, which means that Week 4 was full of juggernauts picking on the lowly FCS teams.
This past weekend, there was only one game between Top 25 teams as 17 other games saw a Goliath matched up against a David. The results weren’t pretty – just ask the three teams that were shutout in Week 4.
The first victim was Florida International, who didn’t stand a chance against Louisville. Led by quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, the Cardinals cruised against the Panthers, running up the score and making a mockery of them on both sides of the ball. When all was said and done, Bridgewater and Co. walked away with a 72-0 victory.
The next joke of a game came in the form of an Idaho State slaughter at the hands of Washington. The Bengals didn’t stand a chance against the Huskies, who put up 56 points while not allowing a single point.
The most notable of Saturday’s blowouts was Ohio State’s outing against Florida A&M. The Rattlers’ efforts were futile, as the Buckeyes managed to put up 76 points before the final whistle mercifully blew. Backup quarterback Kenny Guiton put up six first-half touchdowns en route to a 76-0 win.
If you enjoy lots of touchdowns and embarrassed defenses, Week 4 of college football was for you. Now we can look forward to actual competition as these Top 25 teams get into the meat of their schedules.
