The ESPN college football analyst would have the Sooners at No. 1.
When the new College Football Playoff rankings come out tonight, Alabama is almost surely going to be No. 1. The undefeated Crimson Tide were No. 2 in the latest rankings and will likely jump up after Georgia’s blowout loss.
Kirk Herbstreit has a different team at No. 1, though.
The ESPN college football analyst likes Oklahoma.

Oklahoma has better wins than Alabama, but putting a one-loss team over an undefeated team is always going to be controversial.
The rankings will be unveiled during tonight’s State Farm Champions Classic on ESPN.
