ESPN’s Rece Davis reveals his top 16 teams after Week 5


Five weeks of college football fun isĀ in the books. There have been some firings and high-fiving, some hot starts and hail marys. It’s been a whole lot of fun. And with that, Rece Davis has revealed his top 16 teams, including which four he thinks will make the College Football Playoff.

Here they are:

  1. Ohio State
  2. Alabama
  3. Clemson
  4. Louisville
  5. Houston
  6. Michigan
  7. Washington
  8. Texas A&M
  9. Tennessee
  10. Wisconsin
  11. Miami
  12. Nebraska
  13. Arkansas
  14. Ole Miss
  15. Stanford
  16. Baylor/Colorado

It’s interesting to note only one SEC team in the top four, while there are two ACC teams in the College Football Playoff according to Davis. Louisville remains in the top four despite losing to Clemson this past week. Florida State is a no-show on this list after losing to North Carolina on a field goal as time expired.

The Jim Harbaugh led Michigan Wolverines are in at No. 4 after grinding a win against Wisconsin. Stanford just catches on at the bottom of the list after a poor showing against Washington on Friday night.

What do you think about Davis’ list? Is there a huge oversight? Who’s not getting the respect they deserve?
