North Carolina entered Week 7 as the fifth-best team in college football, according to AP voters. Even with the AP Top 25’s oddities in a COVID-impacted, tha ranking, of course, was ridiculous; the Tar Heels were not the fifth-best team in college football entering Week 7 and, following a loss to Florida State, are not the fifth-best team in college football after Week 7.
Who is the fifth-best team? Who follows (in no alphabetical order) Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, and Ohio State?
This week on the High Motor podcast, we asked and answered that question, naming the fifth-best team from a pool of contenders that includes Florida, Texas A&M, and Wisconsin.
