Football Week 13 Bowl Projection Breakdown

By our count, there are 83 eligible bowl teams for 82 bowl spots. That almost works out nicely. Of course, the big news this week besides Alabama somehow beating Auburn, was Michigan handing it to Ohio State. That drops the Buckeyes out of the playoff picture and sends the Wolverines to the Big Ten Championship game. A win over Iowa and Michigan is in the playoffs. Georgia is in regardless, but Alabama will join them should they beat the Bulldogs in the SEC Championship. Cincinnati may be somewhat safe now too with a win over Houston. The Bearcats main worry comes from Oklahoma State, who will be 12-1 if they beat Baylor in the Big 12 Championship. Should Michigan or Alabama lose, both Cincinnati and Oklahoma State should be in. If both Michigan and Alabama both lose or Oklahoma State and Cincinnati stumble, Notre Dame will be looking to jump into the playoffs. If too many teams lose, things will get crazy and who the committee puts as the top two loss team could matter.
