Kirk Herbstreit’s ‘top 5 teams of the week’ has become a weekly tradition on Twitter. With Week 7 in the books, Herbstreit has posted his top teams of the weekend.
To no surprise, South Carolina tops the list. The Gamecocks pulled off the biggest upset of season, knocking off No. 3 Georgia in epic fashion. There’s no doubt USC deserves the top spot.
You can find the rest of Herbstreit’s list here:
- South Carolina
His top five teams includes three SEC schools, one from the Big 12 and another from the Big Ten.
LSU checks in at No. 2 on Herbstreit’s list. The Tigers beat the Florida Gators 42-28 on Saturday night in Death Valley. It was such a statement win, AP Top 25 voters moved LSU up to No. 2 behind Alabama.
Oklahoma is next on the list after taking down Texas in the Red River Showdown. The Longhorns stuck around for most of the game, but Jalen Hurts and the Sooners’ offense pulled away late in a 34-27 win.
My top performing teams of WEEK 7:

Wisconsin recorded its fourth shutout of the season, blanketing Michigan State 38-0. While Ohio State has been the talk of the Big Ten, the Badgers are quietly dominating their opponents each week.
Finally, Tennessee comes in at No. 5. A few weeks ago, the thought of UT making Herbstreit’s list seemed laughable. But the Volunteers won their first SEC game of the season, coming out victorious over Mississippi State.
In what was an exciting Week 7, Herbstreit’s top five teams are all praiseworthy. Did he leave any deserving teams off his list?
