New Year's Six projections

Based on the most recent rankings, here are my projections for the New Year's Six bowls.

Cotton Bowl (semi-final)
#1 Alabama (projected SEC champ) vs. #4 Michigan (projected Big Ten champ)

Orange Bowl (semi-final)
#2 Clemson (projected ACC champ) vs. #3 Notre Dame

Sugar Bowl
#5 Georgia (projected SEC replacement team) vs. #6 Oklahoma (projected Big 12 champ)

Rose Bowl
#8 Washington State (projected Pac-12 champ) vs. #10 Ohio State (projected Big Ten replacement team)

Fiesta Bowl
#11 UCF (projected Group of 5 rep) vs.#7 LSU

Peach Bowl
#9 WVU vs. #12 Syracuse

The last two could go any way, except that the G5 team is going to the Fiesta Bowl.  I figure that LSU will travel better to Arizona than the other two teams, which will do better in Atlanta.

Week 11 wrap up

Could we have called this Separation Saturday?  A lot of teams got eliminated, and several races have come down to two teams.

Week 10 wrap up

The SEC is fully decided.  Does anyone want to win the Pac-12 South?  Is Maryland feeling nostalgic for the ACC with their one possible scenario to win the division?

Maryland's only chance to win the Big Ten East

I thought Maryland was out of contention for the Big Ten East, but then I saw one scenario that could give them the division.

Maryland would have to force a tie with Michigan at 6-3.  Due to the structure of the remaining schedule, such a tie would also have to involve Ohio State.

2018 Season Review: October Edition

What a month of shake-ups - particularly in the bottom part of the rankings throughout October! With just one month to go in the regular season, let's take a dive into the season that is (and what might still be).

Week 9 wrap up

We're finally eliminating some teams, and it turns out that we get a division clinched next weekend!  Meanwhile, the ACC Coastal is still trying their hardest to force a 7 way tie.

Week 8 wrap up

I feel like this was the lightest weekend of college football all year, with more than the usual number of teams on a bye.  Still, we're starting to eliminate a few teams from contention.

Oh, and Magic Number is back, ya'll!

Week 7 wrap up

How are we already halfway through the season already?  Just as we start getting to the majority of the bye weeks, we have a weekend of chaos that was just slightly below 2007 standards.

We're getting close to a few teams finally getting eliminated, but we can't quite pull the trigger.

2018 Season Review: September Edition

Hard to believe that the first month is behind us already! And a 5-week month to boot!

Still much football to be played, but there are plenty of takeaways to digest!
