Kirk Herbstreit reveals college football 2016 pre-season top 5

The Alabama Crimson Tide knocked off the Clemson Tigers to win the national championship on Monday night and enter the offseason with top bragging rights. It was a great game and has set the stage for what many believe to be a huge 2016 season.

Kirk Herbstreit is one of the top college football analysts and the ESPN guru took to his Twitter account to post his early 2016 preseason top five for next season.

Clemson and Alabama are not a surprise at the top of the list and seeing LSU shouldn’t’ be much of a surprise either, considering the return of star running back Leonard Fournette. Stanford is a program on the rise and is very worthy of being on this list. Ole Miss, on the other hand, is the biggest surprise on this list and could start a bit of a debate.

All of that being said, the 2016 college football season cannot get here soon enough and we can’t wait to see how these three teams start their seasons.
