Football Week 6 Bowl Projection Breakdown

There was some movement at the top this week following Alabama’s defeat to Texas A&M. However, a one-loss Alabama could still make the playoffs and we project the Tide and Georgia to both still be in the playoffs. The other spots remain with Oklahoma and Iowa. The Sooners made a superb comeback in the Red River Rivalry behind back-up quarterback Caleb Williams. The Hawkeyes slipped past Penn State in a 23-20 thriller to take control of the Big Ten. Their defense should lead them to the Big Ten title game without any of the tougher teams from the Big Ten East remaining on the regular season schedule.
