The simple aspect is the best 2.
Alabama and Georgia are as yet projected into the College Football Playoff subsequent to smothering SEC enemies in top-12 matchups on Saturday.
The rest? All things considered, there were a couple of upsets, both in the SEC and the remainder of the country.
Also, that created some fascinating turns.
In the first place, we are currently projecting that, brilliance be, a Group of 5 gathering group will break the CFP biased based impediment. We don’t think anyone in the Big Ten will complete unbeaten (despite the fact that the association actually has 4 groups with wonderful records), and the Pac-12 essentially killed off its possibilities with Oregon’s misfortune at Stanford on Saturday. The ACC is now toast. Thinking about all of that and Cincinnati’s milestone succeed at Notre Dame, and we figure the Bearcats will rise out of the American Athletic Conference to show up in the CFP when the residue settles.
Concerning the SEC arrangement after the CFP, it gets precarious. Expecting the association gets 2 groups into the CFP, a third gathering part is contracted to go the Sugar Bowl to confront a Big 12 adversary. Last week, we extended Florida to that spot. Not any longer.
For the present, it’s Mississippi to the Sugar. Indeed, the Rebels climbed the projection hierarchy and into the New Year’s Day 6 bowl picture even subsequent to losing at Alabama by 3 TDs. Quick version, that outcome didn’t change our assessment of the capability of Ole Miss. Florida’s misfortune especially changed our assessment of the Gators’ postseason objective.
However, truth be told, after Bama and UGA, you could haul out a container and pick an envelope with any of a few names on it. This week, we have Ole Miss. Could be Arkansas (we’ll discover soon enough when the Hogs visit Oxford one week from now). Could be Kentucky after its first home success over UF since 1986. Could be Auburn after its first success at LSU since 1999. Hell, don’t count out UF or Texas A&M presently, yet don’t include them in this moment, by the same token.
At the opposite finish of the projections, Missouri continues sliding down the hierarchy, this time subsequent to getting smothered at home against Tennessee.
As usual, this rundown reflects where groups are projected to be in December, not really their present standing.
The SEC, after its hero is picked for a NYD6 bowl (most likely in the CFP), sends the following best group to the Citrus Bowl. Then, at that point, comes a level of 6 dishes that offer equivalent status: Texas, Music City, Liberty, Outback, Gator and Duke’s Mayo. On the off chance that the SEC has any qualified groups left, the Birmingham and Gasparilla bowls have choices.
Here are the most recent SEC bowl projections:
