The 2019 college football season is now a month old and it's time to separate the contenders from the pretenders.
FOX college football analyst Tim Brando named two of his "pretenders" following Week 4 on Monday afternoon.
One of his pretenders is obvious: Michigan.
The Wolverines came into the season ranked inside the top 10 with College Football Playoff hopes. Jim Harbaugh's team was crushed at Wisconsin on Saturday, though. Michigan looks anything but a contender.
Brando's other pick is a little questionable: Notre Dame.
The Fighting Irish lost at Georgia on Saturday night, 23-17. Brian Kelly's team has an uphill battle to make the College Football Playoff, but it's possible the Fighting Irish win out. At 11-1, perhaps they can sneak in.
Notre Dame will get a chance to prove itself again moving forward, as the Fighting Irish have games remaining against Virginia, Michigan and USC, among others.
Week 5 can't get here soon enough.
