Notes you need to know coming out of Week 4

At the quarter-season mark we have already seen two head coaches and two coordinators relieved of their duties. It is simply too early in the year for all this change.

Coaching winners and losers from Week 4

Gus Malzahn got a huge win -- at the expense of fellow hot-seat staple Les Miles -- while Clay Helton saw his season continue spiraling downward. Plus, what Bobby Petrino's next move should be.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

The ACC ends the day with a perfect 8-0 record in nonconference games, including the most nonconference road wins in any week in league history (five). A top 5 showdown awaits next week between Louisville and Clemson -- yet another huge spotlight ready to shine on the league.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

The last time the ACC posted this many nonconference wins in one weekend was Week 2 in 2014. The best part for the league this time around? Only Boston College won over an FCS team and two victories (Duke over Notre Dame and Wake Forest over Indiana) came against Power 5 teams on the road.

Jared Shanker ESPN Staff Writer 

Wake Forest is 4-0 for the first time since 2006 when the Deacs won 11 games and the ACC. They remain undefeated because backup John Wolford, who lost the QB job, played one of the best games of his career. He kept drives alive with his arms and legs, and he converted when the Wake defense gave him the ball on one of five interceptions. That's the best win of the Dave Clawson era.

David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke, Wake Forest, Syracuse and Virginia were all underdogs by a combined 36.5 points. They went 4-0 with a combined 29-point margin of victory. Good day for the ACC, which is 7-0 in non-conference play, pending Louisville's trip to Marshall tonight.

Jared Shanker ESPN Staff Writer 

John Wolford is inconsistent as a passer, but Wake Forest coaches are giving Wolford a chance to succeed with first-down throws. He's 5 of 6 throwing on first down, including a 26-yard touchdown. Underdog Wake leads 21-7 at half against Indiana.

With Kendall Hinton out for Wake Forest, the Demon Deacons need to take advantage of turnovers and short fields. John Wolford was able to turn one Indiana into a touchdown already, and now Wake needs the defense to continue playing as well as it has the last three years.

Josh Moyer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Hoosiers' new 4-2-5 defense has gotten off to a hot start, but they have yet to face a Power 5 team. That's why this matchup against Wake Forest could serve as a litmus test. If this defense can just reach "average" status -- remaining around its current No. 50 total defense ranking -- it'll be a thorn in the side of the Big East favorites. Because, in the past, this offense could hang with just about anybody.
