This week’s College Football Playoff, bowl projections

bowl projections
MATTHEW EMMONS/USA TODAY SPORTS

Here are the fourth GN playoff and bowl projections of the season.

Our four projected playoff teams this week: Alabama, Clemson, Georgia and Notre Dame.

Notre Dame is in good position to win out. Wisconsin is the only Big Ten team with a legit chance — at this time, at least — but won’t make the field unless it wins out. Oklahoma and TCU meet this week (it could be the first of two meetings), with the loser out of the hunt.

All times listed are Eastern.
