Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:
This week will be a time for quick thinking.
Ohio State's win over Penn State came at a price. The Buckeyes struggled to 253 yards of total offense while allowing yet another team to run the ball successfully. The nation's No. 1 team will have to adjust in a hurry before a trip to Iowa City, where the Buckeyes lost to Iowa 33-7 in 2004.
In the SEC, Georgia will have to find an answer at quarterback when it returns to league play with a trip to Ole Miss. Alabama will have little time to sulk about its overtime loss to Arkansas before the Crimson Tide leaves for Florida.
As for Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish have been knocked down a few pegs by Michigan and Michigan State after all the preseason hype in South Bend, Ind. Now Notre Dame will have to take on a quietly undefeated Purdue team, which could test the Irish secondary.
Who's ready? Who isn't? Is there a team about to make a jump in the rankings? Find out the answers to these and other questions that will shape Week 5:
