College football bowl projections for week 8: Georgia and Oklahoma title game lines up

There are seven weeks left for the college football playoff committee to select the four playoff teams on December 5.

Sporting News will have bowl screenings each week prior to the event. This year’s bowling season with a schedule that includes 42 bowling games between FBS teams. The college football championship game is January 10 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The semifinals are December 31 at the Capital One Orange Bowl and the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic.

Our bowl projection is of how we think the rest of the season will play out.

For now, we believe Georgia will beat Alabama in the SEC championship game. That’s the piece that would theoretically open up a playoff spot for Cincinnati, which is the same projection we had last week. Ohio State remains our pick to win the Big Ten, and Oregon will stumble again in the Pac-12 game. All of that could change in the next seven weeks.

SN has projections for all 42 bowl games here, and they will be updated throughout the season:
