Seven weeks of college football have come and gone in a year that has been nothing short of wild. What is still to come remains to be seen but if the first month-and-a-half is any indicator, it’ll be a wild last couple of months.

As he does each week, Kirk Herbstreit has released his top-six teams of the season to date. It’s no surprise that Notre Dame isn’t included as the Irish sit with one loss but how high does the team that blemish came against check in?

Here is how Herbstreit sees the top six:

Next 2:

Just missing the coveted top four spots which would mean a College Football Playoff berth are a couple of powerhouse rivals as Herbstreit lists Ohio State and Michigan in his “Next 2” category.

These two are set to meet on November 27 in Ann Arbor.

4. Cincinnati


The Bearcats won easily over UCF this weekend, 56-21, but stayed at number four in Herbstreit’s rankings despite a team that ranked ahead of them last week falling.

3. Alabama

Alabama blew out Mississippi State 49-9 on Saturday and moved up multiple spots after being in Herbstreit’s “Next 2” last week.

2. Oklahoma


The Sooners appear to have their quarterback issues worked out and look scary as they check-in at No. 2 in Herbstreit’s rankings.

1. Georgia


Time will tell if they can finish the mission but you’re not going to find a more impressive team through the first seven weeks than unbeaten Georgia, who Herbstreit understandably ranks No. 1.
