Bowl Predictions 2020: Projections for Top Playoff Contenders Before Week 7

The College Football Playoff conversation comes into a more intense focus in Week 7.

The Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs face off in the season's first top-five clash Saturday, and the winner will be the front-runner to reach the playoff out of the SEC.

Clemson fits that billing out of the ACC, and it is one of the three programs from the conference sitting in the top five of the AP Top 25.

The list of potential playoff contenders participating in games will grow in Week 8, when the Big Ten takes the field for the first time.
