Kirk Herbstreit, as he does every week, revealed his list of the top performing teams from Week 4’s college football slate.

The B1G performed well this week and as a result was well-represented on Herbstreit’s list. Ohio State and Northwestern both made the cut alongside Florida State, Washington State, Alabama, Georgia Tech and Kansas.

As you can see, Ohio State landed at No. 1 on the list while Northwestern landed at No. 6 for its semi-shocking win over Minnesota.

Northwestern’s performance wasn’t overtly incredible, but it was unexpected. The Wildcats are fresh off a 1-11 season and Saturday marked their first B1G win since Week 0 last year in Dublin.

Ohio State may have the most impressive win of any team in college football so far this season, though Texas would like a word there. The Buckeyes downed a strong Notre Dame squad in South Bend and did it in instant-classic fashion. OSU still has some question marks moving forward, but the Buckeyes proved they are here to stay in the race for a CFP berth on Saturday.
