New bowl projections after Rivalry Weekend: What will the Playof

by Administrator


2016 is shaping up to give the College Football Playoff committee its hardest decisions ever. Below, a rundown of the postseason picture, based on guesses updated after Rivalry Weekend. That weekend included an Ohio State win over Michigan that knocked the Wolverines out of the Playoff, but that wasn't enough to secure a Big Ten Championship trip for the Buckeyes. Penn State and Wisconsin will play for the conference title, and how the committee handles this will be fascinating. In year three of the Playoff, we'll finally learn something about exactly how the committee really works. There's still a chance that conference title weekend could either resolve a dilemma or give us whole new ones, but for now, here's how things might shape up. I'll update this somewhat on Tuesday night, after the committee reveals its new rankings, and then we'll be five days from seeing the real deal on Selection Sunday.
