Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Iowa Hawkeyes fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

It didn’t take long, but the college football season has already delivered its first round of massive upsets. Two top-10 teams fell to unranked opponents last week, with two more nearly meeting the same fate. As we move into week 5 of the college football season, we’ll find out which of those were flukes and which were leading indicators.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, fans believe one team should be more concerned than the rest. Nearly half of fans who responded said they believe LSU should be the most concerned.

The defending national champions were ranked No. 6 last week when they fell at home to Mississippi State. Similarly, No. 3 Oklahoma lost at home to unranked Kansas State. Texas and Texas A&M were able to survive the week with wins, but both games were decided by a touchdown or less.

The Aggies have another difficult test this weekend as they go on the road to play Alabama. However, the most anticipated game of the weekend is a different SEC matchup, as No. 7 Auburn goes on the road to play No. 4 Georgia.

You can find the full listing of today’s games in our weekly TV listing breakdown here.

As for Hawkeyes fans, confidence remains high as the team gears up for its first game of the season. 86 percent of Iowa fans said they are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s only a slight down-tick from 88 percent a week ago.
