ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum has updated his personal rankings following Week 8 of the 2019 college football season.

Week 8 was somewhat eventful, with previously-unbeaten Wisconsin losing in a shocker to Illinois. Alabama also lost Tua Tagovailoa to an ankle injury (for how long...we'll see). And Penn State notched a huge win against Michigan.

Finebaum has since updated his top four.

  1. Ohio State
  2. LSU
  3. Alabama
  4. Clemson

The ESPN college football analyst remains quite high on the 7-0 Buckeyes, who blew out Northwestern on Friday night.

“I still like Ohio State. I know they played on Friday night, and we forgot about it. It was against Northwestern. I think they’re the most complete team in the country," he said.

Ohio State will get another test next weekend, when the Buckeyes host Wisconsin.

The official new top 25 polls will be out at noon E.T. and 2 p.m. E.T.
