Georgia was on the bye this week, but all 5 of the other teams on Herbstreit’s list were in action.
Ohio State, Alabama and Michigan all blew out inferior opponents, while Cincinnati and Oklahoma survived scares from conference cellar-dwellers.
4 out of Herbstreit’s top 6 teams have a realistic shot at playing each other as Michigan and Ohio State play at the end of the year, and it seems as if Georgia and Alabama are on a collision course for the SEC title.
5 of the 6 teams are in action next week:
- Georgia vs. Florida (World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party)
- Ohio State vs. No. 7 Penn State
- Alabama: IDLE
- Cincinnati at Tulane
- Michigan at No. 9 Michigan State
- Oklahoma vs. Texas Tech
Week 9 has a lot of the top teams in action against other ranked opponents.
