2021 College Football News bowl projections, predictions and possible matchups for the College Football Playoff: Week 0


Not a whole lot has changed from the Preview 2021 Bowl Projections after one light week of games to kick off the college football season.

Nebraska wasn’t in our first round of projections, UCLA beating Hawaii was part of the equation, and there wasn’t anything too crazy to come out of the blue. Even so, there are a few slight tweaks here and there.

Expect the big changes to kick in after Week 1.
