It was another wild weekend of college football that saw national title contenders Texas A&M and Clemson get stunned by Arkansas and NC State respectively. With the title picture once again shaken up, college football analyst Paul Finebaum has released his new top 4.

Appearing on SportsCenter this morning, Finebaum listed off his new top 4. Naturally, he had SEC powerhouses Alabama and Georgia at the top of the list. Filling up the final two spots are Oregon and Penn State, who boast some of the most impressive wins of the season to date.

Appearing on SportsCenter, Finebaum called it “hard to explain” what happened to Ohio State in the game. He credited Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal and offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead with creating a brilliant gameplan.
