This week’s College Football Playoff, bowl projections

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

Our four projected playoff teams this week: Alabama, Clemson, Miami and Oklahoma.

Yes, that’s right — two ACC teams in the playoff. The thought is that Miami is ranked higher in the CFP rankings going into the ACC championship game but that Clemson wins in a close one — close enough that UM stays in the top four. The projection here also is that Alabama beats Georgia in the SEC championship game, Ohio State beats Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game and Oklahoma beats TCU in the Big 12 championship game.
