Kirk Herbstreit ranks CFB’s top performing teams of opening week
ESPN College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit recently ranked his top-eight performing teams from Week 1.
This is not meant to be viewed as a power ranking, but simply which team performed the best given their circumstances.
This includes unranked teams beating ranked opponents (Virginia Tech beating UNC, UCLA beating and LSU), impressive victories (Georgia and Penn State), and some Group of Five schools (Charlotte and Northern Illinois) taking down big programs.
Here are Herbstreit’s top-eight performances from Week 1.
