Our Week 4 picks are after the jump:

Here is a rundown of the games this week:

NC State @ Cincinnati - I picked NC State because nobody else did.  Honestly, that was my entire reasoning behind that pick.

San Diego St. @ Michigan - Rocky Long takes his Aztecs into Ann Arbor to face Brady Hoke and the team he left them for.  

Notre Dame @ Pitt - Notre Dame finally closed a game, and Pitt just suffered a Notre Damish collapse against Iowa.

North Carolina @ Georgia Tech - Georgia Tech is running for 427yards per game.  The Yellow Jackets rushed for 604!!! against Kansas.  North Carolina is only giving up 2.3 yards per carry.  Something's gotta give!

Georgia @ Ole Miss - The coach of the losing team will not be around in 2012.  Mark it down.

Colorado @ Ohio St. - Ohio St. comes home with their tail between their legs after the thumping Miami put on 'em.  Also, they announced they are starting true freshmen Braxton Miller at QB after the line was up.

Arkansas @ Alabama - Alabama got a big spread in one of the best games of the day.  This should be a fun game to watch.

Cal @ Washington - Washington comes off a tough game against Nebraska, Cal comes of a laugher against Presbyterian.  We'll see who is prepared physically.

Florida St. @ Clemson - Florida St. comes off a tough loss against Oklahoma, Clemson comes off a solid win against Auburn.  We'll see who is prepared mentally.

Southern Miss @ Virginia - A classic 12 Pac game.  I don't know anything about these two teams other than Larry Fedora and Mike London are good football coaches.

Oklahoma St. @ Texas A&M - The last Big 12 matchup between the two schools is another candidate for the game of the day.  

Vanderbilt @ South Carolina - James Franklin has the Commodores playing ball.  

LSU @ WVU - The last game of the day candidate pits John Chavis and LSU's ballhawking defense against Dana Holgorson's spread raid attack. 

Oregon @ Arizona - After getting beat by the Tigers, Oregon return home and played Nevada and Southeast Missouri to heal up for conference play.  Oregon should win, but don't be surprised if they're a little rusty from lack of competition.

Southern Cal @ Arizona St. - ASU returns home after getting beat by Illinois on the road.  USC looked like they were turning a corner last week against Syracuse, but this is the first time they've left South Central all year.

UCLA @ Oregon St. - This is a must win game for the Bruins.  This is a must win game for the Beavers. We'll see what team shows the most heart.
