Unranked unbeatens

-- Georgia Tech (3-0) rallied to stun North Carolina at home, 28-20. The Jackets overcame a 13-0 deficit to improve to 2-0 in ACC play as the Techsters welcome in Virginia Tech on Thursday night.

-- Maryland (4-0) routed West Virginia, 37-0 to easily cash as four-point home favorites. The Terrapins have two weeks off prior to their conference opener against Florida State in Tallahassee on October 5.

SEC 'chalk' eaters

Florida, Alabama, LSU, and Georgia all picked up victories in Week 4, but none of the four teams covered as heavy favorites. The Gators beat Tennessee by two touchdowns, while falling short of the 16 ½-point line. The Crimson Tide cruised past Colorado State, 31-6, but couldn't cash as 40-point favorites. One of the potential upsets of the day fell short as Georgia held off North Texas, 45-21 as 33-point 'chalk.'

On the Rise
