Kirk Herbstreit releases CFB playoff foursome after Week 8

Kirk Herbstreit is one of the more respected college football analysts in the sports media world and he has been releasing his college football foursome predictions after each week of the 2015 college football season.

There has been quite a bit of movement in the predictions throughout the season, but after this week’s schedule of games there are four teams that are very firm at the top. Herbstreit took to his Twitter account to make his college football prediction after Week 8 and they are right on point.

My top 4 after WEEK 8.
1-Ohio State
2-Baylor
3-LSU
4-Clemson
Next 2

Ohio State remained perfect this week at 8-0 with a 49-7 blowout of Rutgers. Urban Meyer has pulled the strings perfectly and J.T. Barrett made them look like a legitimate championship caliber offense.

Baylor has one of the nation’s most high-powered offenses and Art Briles’ team isn’t going to slow down. There is some concern about the injury that Seth Russell suffered, but they will be just fine whether he can play or not the rest of the season. Even with the injury, they definitely belong as the second team in these rankings.

Both LSU and Clemson are quality football teams who have proven themselves in big games this year. They are both capable of knocking off any team they face and are excellent picks to make it into the College Football Playoff this season.

Herbstreit is 100 percent right with these four teams and the next two teams that he has on the list are solid as well. Michigan State could very well get back into the mix at some point, but they have to come away with some convincing wins over the next few weeks in order to make that happen.

Expect to see some movement again next week, but for now this is an excellent prediction.
