It’s well known that ESPN commentator Danny Kanell isn’t fond of the SEC.
But five weeks into the season, not even he can deny that the top team in college football resides in the SEC. Kanell released his top-5 on Sunday. And despite Clemson’s impressive win over Louisville, the former Florida State quarterback had Alabama in the top spot.

Fellow ESPN commentator Kirk Herbstreit also had Alabama in his top 5. The Crimson Tide face a tough road test this week, as they travel to No. 18 Arkansas on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET on ESPN.
