CBS Sports has zero Big Ten teams in playoff projections after Week 1
Despite a nation-best 12 wins during opening weekend, CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm believes that the Big Ten will be shut out of the College Football Playoff.
After one week of action, Palm predicts that it will be No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Houston in the Peach Bowl and No. 2 Clemson vs. No. 3 Stanford facing off in the Fiesta Bowl — both semifinal games set for a Dec. 31 kickoff — in his latest bowl projections.
