Kirk Herbstreit: The 2 Teams To Beat In The SEC

Kirk Herbstreit speaks on ESPN about college football.

Here are the top two teams in the league heading into the 2017 season.

ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit believes there are two teams to beat in the SEC heading into the 2017 season.

On Twitter this week, Herbstreit was asked to name his College Football Playoff contenders entering the preseason.

Herbstreit named two SEC teams.

The ESPN analyst apparently believes Alabama and LSU are the two best teams in the conference heading into the 2017 season.

That seems fair.

Alabama should be the clear favorite, especially in the SEC West, and there's not really a standout team in the East Division.

LSU appears to have the team capable of beating the Crimson Tide, but that's been said before, and lately, it just hasn't happened.

Who do you have in the SEC heading into the upcoming season?
