College Football Playoff, New Year’s Six Bowl Projections Week 11 – NY6DIANA?

These projections are NOT if the season ended today, they are projected ahead to the end of the season

GoodYear Cotton Bowl Classic

December 30th, 7:15 PM ET, ESPN
Arlington, TX
At-Large vs. At-Large
Bowl Projection: Wisconsin vs. BYU

BYU will finish the year unbeaten, and they should receive a NY6 slot for that effort. The Cougars slide in nicely against a Wisconsin team that does control their own destiny to the CFP, but it seems like a tough task to get by Ohio State.

Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl

January 1st, 12:30 PM ET, ESPN
Atlanta, GA
At-Large vs. At-Large
Bowl Projection: Cincinnati vs. Florida

Florida controls their own destiny to the Playoff, but I don’t see them getting through Alabama. The Gators will have to settle for the highest ranking G5 champion, which seems virtually guaranteed to be Cincinnati

PlayStation Fiesta Bowl

January 2nd, 4 PM ET, ESPN
Glendale, AZ
At-Large vs. At-Large
Bowl Projection: Indiana vs. Oklahoma

As a P5 conference, the Big 12 champ, which I still expect to be Oklahoma, will get a slot in the NY6. They’ll face Indiana, who will likely drop games to Wisconsin and Ohio State, but does have an opportunity against the Big Ten West’s #2 during the conference’s championship week.

Capital One Orange Bowl

January 2nd, 8 PM ET, ESPN
Miami Gardens, FL
ACC vs. Big Ten or SEC
Bowl Projection: Notre Dame vs. Texas A&M

This is the only NY6 game this year with tie-ins, as an ACC team must face a team from the Big Ten or SEC. The loser of the ACC Title game will likely slot in here, as will Texas A&M, which I expect to be the second highest rated team out of the SEC.

Rose Bowl (Semifinal)

January 1st, 5 PM ET, ESPN
Pasadena, CA
Bowl Projection: Ohio State vs. Clemson

Both of these teams will be significant favorites in each of their remaining games before facing tough competition in their respective title games. I expect each to get through unscathed.

Allstate Sugar Bowl (Semifinal)

January 1st, 8:45 PM ET, ESPN
New Orleans, LA
Projection: Alabama vs. Oregon

Watching another week of Pac-12 football has made it very clear that Oregon is likely to go undefeated and win the conference, and I can’t see the committee leaving out an unbeaten P5 champ.

College Football Playoff National Championship

January 11th, 8 PM ET, ESPN
Miami Gardens, FL
Projection: Ohio State vs. Alabama
Pick: Alabama
