ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit has unveiled his new top six rankings following Week 5 of the 2019 regular season.

Herbstreit has a major shakeup inside his personal rankings.

The noted ESPN analyst has a new No. 1 overall team - Ohio State. The Buckeyes, following their 48-7 win at Nebraska, have jumped to the top of Herbstreit's rankings.

Ohio State has just been the most-impressive team in the country so far, says Herbstreit. The Buckeyes have dominated everyone they have played and, despite Nebraska being overrated coming into the year, a 41-point shellacking on the road is impressive regardless.

Here's Herbie's full top six:

  1. Ohio State
  2. Alabama
  3. Clemson
  4. LSU
  5. Georgia
  6. Oklahoma

There's a long way to go, of course, and October features a ton of notable contests, including several between top 10 teams.

College football's rankings are sure to get shaken up a lot more in the weeks to come.
