ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit has updated his personal rankings following Week 12 of the 2019 regular season.

There hasn't been too much of a shuffling in Herbstreit's rankings, as most of the country's top teams won on Saturday.

Two undefeated teams - Baylor and Minnesota - both lost in Week 12, though, and the Golden Gophers have since fallen out of Herbstreit's top six.

Here's his latest poll:

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

Alabama is perhaps the most-intriguing team right now. The Crimson Tide have lost quarterback Tua Tagovailoa for the season. Will the College Football Playoff selection committee consider the Crimson Tide a contender without him?

We'll find out in the weeks to come.

The new College Football Playoff rankings will be out on Tuesday night.
