With just two weekends left in the college football regular season, the bowl projections, including the playoff, are starting to take shape.
The college football bowl projections are starting to paint a clearer picture of what we might see in the postseason as teams inch closer to eligibility and the elite separate themselves in the race for the playoff.
With that brings the reality that the shooting star that is the college football season is soon to dissipate. There’s only two weekends of regular season football left in the 2019 season. A somber reality undoubtedly, but there’s still plenty of big games on the horizon to keep our attention away from the long night of the offseason.
After 12 weeks, I think we have a pretty good idea on how a lot of things will shake out. The College Football Playoff field appears to be 75 percent full at the moment barring a crazy upset over the next three weeks, leading to just a single spot being up for grabs. The mad dash for the No. 4 seed will be the most fascinating storyline to follow the next few weeks.
One of the teams jockeying for position was Alabama, but its 38-7 road win over Mississippi State was marred by a devastating injury to star junior quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. His injury isn’t just a fatal blow to Alabama’s chances of a national championship, it’s a loss for all of college football as we’ve likely seen the last of him playing on this level.
Tagovailoa’s injury dominated the headlines after another strong weekend of football, but we saw plenty of other outcomes that influenced conference races as well as the race for a New Year’s Six berth.
Let’s dive into this week’s bowl projections, taking a look at where things stand heading into Week 13.
