Kirk Herbstreit drops new Top 4 following Week 12 action
Another week of college football is in the books and Kirk Herbstreit as a new Top 4. The ESPN analyst released his latest ranking after making some changes.
Herbstreit appears to be less-than-impressed with Ohio State’s victory over Indiana on Saturday afternoon, giving up a 35-7 lead and nearly allowing the Hoosiers to tie the game late in the 4th quarter. Still, the college football analyst is including the Buckeyes in the Top 4.
But that’s all. Despite Northwestern notching an impressive 17-7 victory over Wisconsin, the Wildcats aren’t in the mix. This week.
Here’s a look at Herbie’s updated Top 4:
- Alabama Crimson Tide
- Notre Dame Fighting Irish
- Clemson Tigers
- Ohio State Buckeyes
On the outside looking in are Florida and Cincinnati.
Alabama, Notre Dame and Ohio State are all undefeated this season and Clemson has lost one game. The Tigers lone loss came at the hands of the Fighting Irish, but Trevor Lawrence did not play for Clemson in that game.
How much will these rankings change in the coming weeks? And how will it compare with the College Football Playoff rankings? We’ll find out soon.
