Looks like several people have seen shifts in their top teams after Week 3 of the season.
Count ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit among those who were impressed with Clemson’s Week 3 performance at Louisville, as Herbstreit now has Clemson as his No. 1 team in his Top 4 that he releases on Twitter every week.
Maybe more surprisingly, Herbstreit now has Alabama at No. 3 in his rankings behind both Clemson and Oklahoma. Penn State then closes out his Top 4, which USC, Michigan, and Oklahoma State being among the teams snubbed for that last spot.
Herbstreit wasn’t the only one at the four-lette network to put Clemson as No. 1, as Mark Schlabach put the Tigers at No. 1, too.
Clemson really impressed in a 47-21 at Louisville on Saturday night, and the game wasn’t even that close as Clemson jumped out to a 33-7 lead by the end of the third quarter. The Clemson defense doesn’t appear to have lost a step at all from last season, and Kelly Bryant is proving to be a legitimate replacement for the current Houston Texans starter Deshaun Watson.
