Week 5 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

It looked like week five may have been one of those weeks that would shake up the top bowl games. However, most of the favorites went on to win, albeit not easily. Florida State was down 24-7 at the end of the first quarter against North Carolina State, but came back to win 56-41. The Seminoles have certainly been vulnerable, but for now they survive and stay in the playoffs. Texas A&M had to come back from a 14 point deficit to force overtime against Arkansas, which they eventually won. The Aggies tough stretch continues over the next three weeks with games against Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Alabama. Texas A&M will likely lose one of those games, but a one loss team from the SEC will be right in the mix for the playoffs.
