ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit Unveils 4 Teams He Has In College Football Playoff After Week 6

After one of the craziest college football Saturdays we've had in quite some time, it's fair to say that the entire College Football Playoff picture has changed. In the end, 11 teams ranked in the AP Poll lost, seven of them for the first time this season. A number of national title contenders - Oregon, Alabama, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, UCLA, among others - dropped games and will have to rebound quickly if they still want to have a chance to play for it all.

Each Sunday morning, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit has been releasing a list of his "top 4" teams right now - essentially the squads that he thinks have done enough at the moment to warrant a playoff spot. As you'd imagine, his list is drastically different this week than it was last Sunday.

It's hard to argue with Auburn, Florida State or Mississippi State being included. Baylor is a bit of a stretch, given its lack of quality wins, but with Oklahoma posting a loss, the Bears are the highest-ranked team at the moment in the Big 12. 

College football fans - does he have it right, at least right now?
