Following every weekend of college football action, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit breaks down the teams and individual performances that impressed him most.

Week 8 featured one of the biggest upsets of the season as Ohio State traveled to Purdue to take on the Boilermakers. Freshman phenom Rondale Moore and the Boilermakers gave the Buckeyes everything they could handle and more.

Unsurprisingly, Purdue ranked among Herbie's top performances from the weekend.

Here are the five teams that impressed Herbstreit the most:

  1. Purdue
  2. UAB
  3. Clemson
  4. Nebraska
  5. Washington State

His full list of top performers can be found below:

Herbie also gave a shoutout to Nebraska, which found its first win of the season, and Clemson, which dominated formerly undefeated NC State.

Meanwhile, Michigan's staunch defense got some love as well after the Wolverines dominated Michigan State in East Lansing. Washington State also pulled off an impressive performance against Oregon and now controls its destiny in the Pac-12.
