Kirk Herbstreit has a new No. 1 team.

ESPN College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit puts out his rankings each Saturday night, and after Alabama's loss, he has a new No. 1 team. It isn't Clemson or Oklahoma either.

Herbstreit, in awe of what Auburn has done to both Georgia and Alabama, now has the Tigers at No. 1 overall heading into the SEC title game. Herbstreit doesn't seem to care that Auburn has two losses.

Whether or not Herbstreit is right, Auburn will sneak into the College Football Playoff if it wins next week against Georgia. If they qualify for the event, they'll be given the opportunity to show everyone that they're the top team in the country.
