College football bowl projections for conference championship week

Bowl Year will be just as unpredictable from a scheduling standpoint as the 2020 faculty soccer normal time.

Some bowl online games have been canceled. Some schools opted out of the postseason just before it started off. Bowl tie-ins will be fluid, and the quantity of online games could alter by the day.

That makes bowl projections nearly impossible to determine out. Sporting News can take its last crack at them just before conference championship weekend. Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Ohio State keep on being our picks for the Faculty Football Playoff heading into the closing weekend.
