ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit revealed his predictions for the College Football Playoff in Week 5. Herbstreit listed LSU as the fourth team in the playoff behind Baylor, Ohio State and Oklahoma. The Tigers would face the Bears in Herbstreit’s hypothetical playoff.
LSU was the only SEC team ranked in Herbstreit’s top six. The Tigers are also the highest-ranked team in the latest Associated Press poll. LSU is ranked seventh, while Alabama and Texas A&M come in at eighth and ninth respectively.
