The Spun's 2018 College Football Staff Picks: Week 4

College football week 4 staff picks by The Spun.

College football Week 4 delivers some very interesting match-ups, and a much larger slate of conference games between big opponents.

College GameDay heads to Eugene, for a big night game in the Pac-12 North. Oregon and Stanford are both ranked and in the Top 25, and along with Washington, are contending for one of college football's best divisions.

Elsewhere, Alabama is back in Tuscaloosa, hosting an upstart Texas A&M team. The Aggies are ranked No. 22 at 2-1, and are weeks removed from a near-upset of Clemson at home. Alabama may be a whole different animal, though.

Ohio State doesn't have a huge opponent, with Tulane coming up to Columbus, but Urban Meyer is back on the sideline for the first time this season.

Through three weeks, things remain close in our staff picks contest. Only five picks separate the entire The Spun staff, with a tie at the top after four of our seven pickers led the way at 35-11 last week.

After Week 3, here are The Spun's staff pick standings.
