Herbstreit had quite the changes this week and not just at the top of his six ranked teams.
Ohio State moved up from third to first while Georgia fell from the top spot to third.
Alabama and Michigan stayed at two and four respectively, while Clemson remained in his next-two. However, despite winning with relative ease against Arizona State, USC was bumped from Herbstreit’s top six after Oklahoma State impressive win at previously ranked Baylor.
