Kirk Herbstreit updates top-six CFB rankings: No. 5 scares me

ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit shared his updated top six during the USCNotre Dame broadcast on Saturday night.

The big one of the day was Michigan’s beat down over Ohio State, which provided fans with many answers. Additionally, LSU saw its playoff dreams die in a loss to Texas A&M, but the Tigers still have a shot at the SEC championship on Saturday against Georgia.

Georgia handled Georgia Tech in Athens. TCU took care of business against Iowa State. And USC again proved its a real threat against Notre Dame. And then there’s Alabama, which is somehow still within striking distance. The Tide will need some help, but how classic would it be if Nick Saban managed to avoid the SEC Championship game and still get a two-loss team in the playoffs?

Here’s Herbstreit’s top six, with each team’s national title odds (courtesy of BetMGM), following the weekend:
