Every week of the college football season, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit cites the team that impressed him most over the previous weekend.
With Week 1 now behind us, Herbstreit revealed his top performing teams. It’s a pretty long list as well, with eight programs making the cut.
Right at the top is Chip Kelly’s UCLA Bruins, which landed a marquee win by knocking off No. 16 LSU on Saturday. Speaking of big wins, Virginia Tech is second on Herbstreit’s list. The Hokies took down a top-10 North Carolina team on Friday.
Georgia had the best win of Week 1, as its defense dominated Clemson. Iowa also had an impressive W, thumping a ranked Indiana squad.
Rounding out Herbstreit’s top eight are Northern Illinois (which beat Georgia Tech), Charlotte (which beat Duke), Penn State (won at Wisconsin) and UTSA (road win at Illinois).
What a GREAT week of CFB…here are my top performing teams from WEEK 1! 🏈
