We didn't have any seismic upsets in Week 4 of the college football season, but we did see two top-10 teams (Oklahoma and Arkansas) go down, with several others -- Clemson and USC among them -- survive some close calls. With the first month of the schedule in the books, the picture for the College Football Playoff, the New Year's Six games and the rest of bowl season is beginning to show a bit of clarity, at least for the time being.

ESPN college football reporters Kyle Bonagura and Mark Schlabach are back with their latest projections for all the games, including their analysis of the CFP picture and which teams helped and hurt their causes the most over the weekend.
