Week 4's top performances

I'm going to wait another week before posting opponent-adjusted EP3s. 

Bowling Green had the most dominant offensive performance of the week. They scored touchdowns on 7 of 10 possessions, including drives of 99 and 97 yards. Savannah State is maintaining a streak of horrific performances against FBS schools. Mississippi State's offensive explosion against Troy was unsuspected (by me, at least).

Miami scored a -2.33 against Cincinnati. That is almost impossible. The typical possession is worth about 2.1 points, so in most cases a team can do better than -2.33 by just punting the ball away on first down. But Miami gained positive yards on only 8 of 14 possessions, so they were almost better punting on first down. Seven yards on 29 rushes is amazing. West Virginia's -2.28 is little better, but they got there mostly through turnovers.
