ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit Releases Playoff Foursome, Iowa Isn't Even In Top 6

Earlier this morning, we gave you a look at ESPN college football analyst Danny Kanell's top four - which features undefeated Iowa at No. 2. Well, here's the other end of the spectrum. Kirk Herbstreit, of College GameDay fame, doesn't even have the Hawkeyes in his top six. Instead, Herbstreit has one-loss Michigan State, which knocked off Ohio State Saturday, as his Big Ten representative. 

Herbstreit also has Clemson, Alabama and Oklahoma in his foursome. Notre Dame and Baylor are the next two out.

Iowa has two games left - the first against Nebraska next Friday, and the second against whichever team wins the Big Ten East. It's hard to imagine a 13-0 Big Ten champion being left out.
