Projecting college football’s New Year’s Six, including the College Football Playoff


Just like everything else in college football this year, the plan for bowl season is a bit of a moving target. With 76 teams playing for what was supposed to be 82 bowl slots, it’s clear the postseason will look a lot different. Just how different? Only time will tell.

So, for now,’s bowl projections will be scaled back from their customary format to include only the New Year’s Six. When there is more clarity about what the postseason will look like, bowl projections can settle into their own new normal.
