College football bowl projections for Week 10: Cincinnati holds fourth playoff spot (for now)

The first set of College Football Playoff rankings will be unveiled Tuesday, and that will give the first hint as to who the four playoff teams will be.

It’s still five weeks until the selection show, and there is a lot to play out. Sporting News will have bowl projections each week leading up to the final results. This year’s bowl season includes 42 games between FBS teams. The College Football Playoff championship game is Jan. 10 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The semifinals are Dec. 31 at the Capital One Orange Bowl and Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic.

Our bowl projection is for how we believe the rest of the season will play out.

We maintained the same four teams heading into the first set of rankings. Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Cincinnati are our Playoff picks for now, and that’s based on the belief that the Bulldogs will give the Crimson Tide their second loss in the SEC championship game. Oregon, of course, has to lose a second game to make this happen.

We also have Georgia meeting Ohio State in the CFP championship game for the second straight week. Baylor and Michigan State moved into our New Year’s Day Six. Iowa and Oklahoma State moved out.

SN has projections for all 42 bowl games here, and they will be updated throughout the season:
