Week 12 Football Bowl Projections Breakdown

Nearly all of the top teams survived scares this week. It was Tennessee that did not survive, falling to South Carolina. That is very good news for USC, who beat UCLA in a 48-45 thriller. The Trojans now basically control their own playoff destiny. If they can beat Notre Dame next week and win the Pac-12 Championship game after that, they will be in the playoffs.
