    Next weekend’s carnage will be key. We’ve done what we can do!

    Unless something monumental happens it looks like the Orange Bowl.

    That is of course assuming the CFP computers don’t have Bama over us.

    Root for UGA to beat LSU and LSU and UGA are both in the Playoffs and we go to the Sugar Bowl? I love a trip to New Orleans!

    I am confused. I thought the Orange Bowl had a contractual obligation to take the highest rated ACC team not in the playoffs. Why does that article say the Big 10 will be there?

    Two teams play reach other so both are correct. ACC vs. SEC/Big Ten/ND. CBS projects Penn State against UVA.

    It’s going to be Cotton if favorites win.

    The Penn State pick is based on them being ahead of us in the CFP ranking.

    Any championship discussion that doesn't include UCF is worthless.

    Which makes zero sense. Especially after Minnesota got their doors blown off yesterday.

    I'd like to play Penn state just to whip their ass for thinking they're more deserving of their ranking than us...

    Might as well say good bye to a NY6 bowl.

    Jerry Palm has us in the Citrus Bowl:

    Jan. 1

    Sugar
    New Orleans

    SEC vs. Big 12

    Georgia vs. Baylor
    Jan. 1

    Rose
    Pasadena, Calif.

    Big Ten vs. Pac-12

    Wisconsin vs. Oregon
    Dec. 30

    Orange
    Miami Gardens, Fla.

    ACC vs. SEC/B1G/ND

    Virginia vs. Penn State
    Dec. 28

    Cotton
    Arlington, Tex.

    At-large vs. At-large

    Memphis vs. Utah

    Auburn at 9-3, despite its win over Alabama, can not be expected to make a New Year's Six bowl. The current projection has Wisconsin and Penn State ahead of both Florida and Alabama this week and even after Wisconsin loses to Ohio State, perhaps even if the Badgers lose badly again. The committee has a history of being kind to championship game losers, and after all, Ohio State does beat everyone badly these days.

    Penn State is already ranked ahead of Florida and is expected to still be in the final CFP Rankings because of a better schedule and higher-quality wins. Wisconsin will likely jump both this week after the win over Minnesota. If the committee can get past the name on the front of the uniform and the eye-catching talent, Alabama should drop below Florida. Still, that does not put the Gators in the New Year's Six field. The Crimson Tide will enter Selection Sunday without a win over a team in the rankings in only two attempts.
