Week 4 Poll Breakdown: ACC & Big 12

[vc_row][vc_column width=”5/6″ offset=”vc_col-lg-offset-1″][vc_column_text]

Two of the most exciting games came from the Big 12 last Saturday
as TCU and Oklahoma State narrowly held on to win on the road against
Texas Tech and Texas, respectively. Coincidentally (or maybe not), the
biggest changes in the polls came from the Big 12 with Oklahoma State
and West Virginia as the biggest movers.

Associated Press Top-25. Big 12 teams in red, ACC in blue. Notre
Dame in gold.
