ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit can barely talk today after attending both the SEC and Big Ten title games, but that didn’t stop him from dropping his new top 4 just ahead of the College Football Playoff selection show.

During an appearance on ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown,” Herbstreit discussed which team he thought would be No. 1 and went ahead and listed his top four.

According to Herbstreit, this is how the Playoff field should look when it comes out on Sunday at noon Eastern time:

  1. LSU
  2. Ohio State
  3. Clemson
  4. Oklahoma

“To me, it’s flipping a coin,” Herbstreit said. “You could almost put Clemson in there, but they just haven’t played anybody. I think LSU because of the schedule. I think when you’re that close, resume should matter, and I think it gives LSU a slight edge. I think LSU will be No. 1 and Ohio State will be No. 2, which will put Ohio State-Clemson in Phoenix in the Fiesta Bowl and OU-LSU in Atlanta for the Peach Bowl.”
