Bowl Projections: Oct. 12. Oregon? Nebraska?

College Football Bowl Projections

Here’s the crazy call … no Nebraska, and no Oregon. This might all change quickly after this weekend, but Nebraska is 2-4 and still has to go to Minnesota on the road and has to get by Northwestern, Michigan State and Iowa. The Huskers have to win at least two of those four games, and they can’t miss on the road at Purdue and Rutgers. Oregon is even more interesting at 3-3. If the team is lousy enough to lose to Washington State and get blown away by Utah, can it beat Washington, Arizona State and Stanford on the road, and handle Cal and USC at home? The Ducks have to win at least two of those, to go along with the Oregon State game to close out the regular season. If Oregon does get to at least six wins, the Pac-12 will likely have one other team – Arizona? Washington? – who gets left out. Basically, the Duck-Dawg winner this weekend probably gets a bowl.

AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX
Playoff vs. Playoff
Projection: Alabama vs. TCU

Alabama still needs another Ole Miss loss, but it’s going to ride the running game and the defense to the SEC title. TCU’s defense is going to continue to struggle, but even with a loss along the way, the Horned Frogs are going to be the Big 12’s One True Champion.

Capital One Orange Bowl

College Football Playoff Semifinal
Thursday, December 31, 4:00 or 8:00 pm ET, ESPN
Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL
Playoff vs. Playoff
Projection: Stanford vs. Ohio State

It might be a rough run at the moment in terms of style of play, but the call is that Ohio State gets it all together as the season goes on and grows into the killer it’s supposed to be in November. Stanford’s schedule suddenly looks far more manageable than it did several weeks ago. It’s going to roll through it on the way to the Pac-12 title.
