ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit closed out the 2016 college football season as the color analyst for the College Football Playoff national title game on Monday night.
He described it as “as compelling and entertaining as any game” he has called– and he’s called a bunch of them.
On Tuesday, Herbstreit turned his eyes toward the 2017 season when prompted for a preseason Top 5. Being a good sport, the ESPN College GameDay host obliged his followers with a stab at his Top 5.
Two SEC teams made the cut, as Alabama (No. 2) and LSU (No. 5) made the list along with Florida State, USC and Penn State.
Folks asking me for my early, early, early PRESEASON top 5. Have no idea right now. But for fun. NEXT YEAR
