Future College Football Playoff Sites & Dates

This will be updated after all of the games are over on Saturday. 

There will be one more main move before the big round of projections after next Saturday night.

Where will the College Football Playoff committee rank the top teams on Tuesday?

Where will it rank Penn State and Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl chase? How many SEC teams will be in the top ten?

Where Penn State, Florida, Alabama and Wisconsin are ranked will change the entire puzzle, so take this ALL with a big grain of salt – half of this might need to be blown up and redone in 72 hours.

One other key note: the Big Ten has rules with several of its bowl games that four new teams go in a five-year span.

For right now, here’s the best guess …
