After another chaotic in College Football, the CFB Playoff picture is becoming more clear. On Sunday, ESPN College Football analyst Kirk Herbstreit gave his Top 6 heading into rivalry week.
He’s got a pair of B1G teams listed in his Top 4, which sets up an epic bout in Week 13.
Interesting aspect in my rankings OSU/UM play this weekend and UGA/Bama next week-In my opinion if UC wins their next 2 they will be in the playoff.

Not surprisingly, Georgia (11-0) is ranked as No. 1 in this ranking followed by Herbstreit’s alma mater of Ohio State at No. 2. Ohio State (10-1) is coming off a dominating 56-7 home win over No. 7 Michigan State on Saturday.
He has dropped Alabama (10-1) to No. 3 after a close 42-35 win over #21 Arkansas. Finishing out the top four is Michigan (10-1) after a big 59-18 road win at Maryland. Herbstreit has a top-four matchup in one of the most heated rivalries in College Football between Ohio State and Michigan.
Herbstreit has Cincinnati (11-0) and Oklahoma State (10-1) as the first two teams out of the playoff. He did state that Cincinnati will rise into the top four after Michigan or Ohio State loses, Alabama loses, and Cincinnati wins their last two games.
