In a day with several blowouts, a pair of incredible upsets over SEC powerhouses and a gift-wrapped win to a top National Title contender, several teams and players stood out from the rest.
Here are the biggest winners from Week 4 of the college football season:
Indiana Hoosiers – The Hoosiers had the second biggest upset of the weekend, taking down the previously undefeated #18 Missouri Tigers. The win seemed to come out of nowhere since it was on the road following a heart breaking loss to Bowling Green (a team that gave up 68 points to Big Ten rival Wisconsin).
Jameis Winston – A double-win for Winston, first being able to resume his quest for another undefeated national title shot, but also due to the terrible play of backup QB Sean Maguire, which proved just how much FSU needs Winston if they have any hopes of winning another big game. Not every non-Clemson team will gift-wrap a win for you.
Melvin Gordon – With 5 TDs in a Wisconsin win over Bowling Green, Melvin Gordon made his name known around the world. 253 yards and 5 TDs on only 13 carries! That’s a Heisman Trophy worthy performance.
Michigan State – The loss to Oregon made the Spartans even angrier than anticipated, smacking around Eastern Michigan to the tune of a 73-14 blowout.
Mississippi State – With arguably the biggest upset of the season so far, the unranked Mississippi State Bulldogs upset the #8 ranked LSU Tigers with a 34-29 victory that wasn’t as close as the final score indicates. With games against Texas A&M and Auburn in the next two weeks, Miss. State can establish itself as a major contender in the bowl picture,
