Going into the week, it looked like nobody could stop Oklahoma State, it looked like Mississippi State was an SEC contender, and it looked like Alabama may just be mortal after all. Now, after Week 4, all of these notions have been, for all intents and purposes, disproved. After a hectic week that narrowed our list of playoff contenders, here is the Week 5 edition of the Armchair Top 25:

Editor in Chief
My name is Scott Moran, and I am the Chief Editor here at Armchair. I plan to attend the University of Arizona in 2018, and as such I am a huge Wildcats fan. However, if there’s any team playing college football or basketball, you can bet I’m watching. In terms of pro sports, I follow the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona Cardinals, and Vegas Golden Knights. Despite my huge obsession with college sports, I have no delusions about my own athletic ability.
