Arkansas fans fire back at Kirk Herbstreit's Top 6 rankings after Week 4
ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit took to Twitter on Sunday morning to reveal his top 6 teams in the nation.
It was no surprise to see Alabama and Georgia at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively.
After that, Herbstreit had Oregon at No. 3, Penn State at No. 4, Cincinnati at No. 5, and Florida at No. 6.
What a weekend of CFB games!!
After the 1st month of the season this could be the toughest “top 4 + next 2” I’ve had to come up with. As we approach October next weekend.

Herbstreit’s list drew plenty of criticism from a number of fan bases, including Notre Dame and Iowa.
Also making a strong appearance in the comments were Arkansas fans, who believe their Razorbacks deserve consideration after a 4-0 start to the season and wins over Texas and Texas A&M.
Arkansas will get every chance to prove it belongs among the nation’s best when it plays at Georgia this coming Saturday.
For now, however, here’s a look at how some Razorbacks fans reacted to Herbstreit’s tweet this morning:
You’ll have Arkansas up there after next weekend!

Where’s Arkansas?. One of the most impressive resumes In CFB. More impressive resume than cincy, Florida and Penn state… no love for the hogs. Georgia better watch out next week.

Might want to add Arkansas to your list! The are definitely ahead of Florida and Cincinnati. @KirkHerbstreit

This is fair. Although a I think Arky should be over Cinci, because it’s obvious now UT is a hell of a ball team that the Razorbacks beat handily and now A&M.

The fact that you have Cinci above Arkansas is the reason I have trust issues …..
