Paul Finebaum ranks Top 4 college football teams after Week 5
Paul Finebaum watched on Saturday as Bryce Young left Alabama’s win at Arkansas with an injury. Then, he watched as Georgia struggled to beat unranked Mizzou in the SEC nightcap.
So, what does the popular SEC Network analyst think about the current state of college football’s top teams?
On Sunday morning, Finebaum appeared on SportsCenter and ranked his top 4 teams. He named USC as a team to file away for later as just on the outside of the rankings:
3. Ohio State Buckeyes: “Look at No. 3 and take your pick. I’m going with Ohio State. They’re really playing flawlessly right now, but the competition has to improve before I think we start giving them too many kudos. But right now, they could easily be No. 1.”
2. Alabama Crimson Tide: “At No. 2, who is it? It’s still Bama. Alabama won on the road without their best player and still survived a very hostile environment.”
1. Georgia Bulldogs: “At No. 1, it’s Georgia. I said a couple of weeks ago that Georgia is the new Alabama. Georgia is actually the old Georgia right now the way they are playing. They’re playing down to competition and Kirby has to be concerned about that.”
Week 6 features some big games. Will we see some chaos come to Finebaum’s rankings this time next Sunday?
