Back into the top six this week is Michigan, who won easily against Indiana. The Wolverines sit at 8-1 after the win, one week after they blew a late lead at Michigan State.

In case you’re wondering, Indiana is now 2-7 in 2021.

4. Ohio State

By no means was it the dominating show many expected but Alabama’s victory over LSU was enough to keep the Crimson Tide No. 2 in Herbstreit’s eyes.

1. Georgia
