College football is underway as teams are preparing for week five of the new season. Many teams have already eliminated themselves as playoff contenders, slowly teams are starting to emerge as the favorites to take the College Football Playoff home.

“This year of college football just feels different, it hard to explain but there is a different vibe and I’m excited to see what teams do this year,” said junior Sam Kyker.

The reigning champions Georgia Bulldogs are off to another hot start going 4-0 through the season, outscoring their opponents 169-32 through four games. Returning quarterback Stetson Bennett is on fire, placing himself in the top five for the Heisman voting.

“Georgia is just unbelievable again this year, Kirby Smart has really done an amazing coaching job, booming their team to a powerhouse program again,” said junior Corbin Wells.

The Tennessee Volunteers have made a surprise statement this year. The Vols are 4-0 on the young season having beat two ranked opponents, the Pittsburgh Panthers and the Florida Gators last week. Tennessee moved up to number eight in the AP rankings.

“Tennessee was a huge sleeper this year and they have pleasantly surprised me so far, they still have three more tough opponents left so I’m interested to see how they finish off the season,” said senior Evan Wright.

The season is still very early and there are a lot of chances for teams to move up and down, so far college football has yet to disappoint. So far, the season has been filled with ups and downs, upsets, and fireworks.

“I love college football, it makes it feel like there is a certain feeling in the air, it definitely brings me closer to my family and friends along with creating a fun environment while hanging out,” said junior Cade Spanhook.
