No. 24 Iowa jumped into the top 25 of the college football rankings after winning its first three games of the season. The Hawkeyes will face their toughest test so far when they travel to No. 7 Penn State on Saturday night in a Big Ten on CBS (7:30 p.m. ET) matchup during the Week 4 college football schedule. They have scored at least 20 points in all three of their games, but they are 14.5-point underdogs in the Week 4 college football odds from SportsLine consensus. Should you back them with your Week 4 college football bets?
No. 19 Colorado escaped with a double-overtime win over Colorado State last week, but Deion Sanders and the Buffaloes are expected to suffer their first loss of the season when they face No. 10 Oregon on Saturday. Coach Prime’s team is a 20.5-point underdog in the latest Week 4 college football spreads.

Top college football predictions for Week 4
One of the college football picks the model is recommending for Saturday: Baylor (+14.5) easily stays within the spread against No. 3 Texas in a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff at McLane Stadium. Texas might have defeated Wyoming by 21 points last week, but the game was tied heading to the fourth quarter. The Longhorns’ Week 2 win over Alabama is not looking as impressive as it once was either, as the Crimson Tide struggled against South Florida last week.
Sophomore quarterback Quinn Ewers is coming off his worst outing of the season for Texas, completing 11 of 21 passes for just 131 yards against Wyoming. Baylor led in the fourth quarter against No. 12 Utah two weeks ago before blowing out LIU last week. The Bears are 8-2-1 against the spread in their last 11 games as underdogs, and they are covering the spread in well over 60% of the model’s latest simulations.
Another prediction: Arkansas (+18) plays a competitive road game at No. 12 LSU on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. LSU will have trouble pulling away against an Arkansas offense that has scored at least 28 points in all three of its games this season. Quarterback KJ Jefferson has completed 55 of 77 passes for 629 yards, six touchdowns and just one interception while rushing for 80 yards and another score.
Junior running back AJ Green is averaging 6.8 yards per carry, racking up 190 yards and two touchdowns on 28 attempts. LSU took advantage of a rough performance from Mississippi State’s offense last week, but the Tigers are unlikely to have the same success this week. SportsLine’s model has Jefferson accounting for nearly 250 yards and two touchdowns in the latest simulations, which is a big reason why the Razorbacks are covering the spread 60% of the time.
