New Year’s Six Bowl Projections: Week 2

There’s one big call being made that affects all the other pieces of the puzzle – Oregon is going to blow it.

There are still too many tough road games – UCLA, Utah, Stanford, and yes, Washington (really – the Huskies will be fine). The Pac-12 will be crazy all season long. If not, put the Ducks in the CFP, Clemson in the Peach, and the UCLA-USC winner – the Trojans will bounce back – in the Rose.

And if Oregon really does happen to lose twice along the way, it’ll be a rematch against Ohio State in the Rose. No one really wants that, but it’s only Week 3 – this will all change soon.

UCF or Cincinnati will be in the Fiesta, and put the TCU-Iowa State winner late in the season in the Sugar. Not totally jumping off the Cyclones to the Sugar quite yet, but the first two weeks have been way too shaky.
