Bowl Projections: Final Call

Here we go – the final call before the official announcements on all the bowl games and College Football Playoff matchups come out on Sunday.

We’ll adjust on the fly as news and rumors trickle out, but for now, the goal is to get these as close to the pin as possible after the Championship Weekend.

At the very least, we’ve got the College Football Playoff and New Year’s Six games right … we think.

Teams that accepted bowl bid are in red.
