CBS Sports comes out with latest bowl projections
Jerry Palm is sticking with some bold bowl predictions, despite the way the weekend shook out.
Michigan State, which moved to No. 4 in the country after knocking off No. 7 Oregon, wasn’t even picked by Palm to represent the Big Ten in the Rose Bowl. Auburn, on the other hand, needed overtime to beat Jacksonville State but Palm kept the Tigers in his College Football Playoff projections.
In all, he tabbed nine Big Ten teams as bowl eligible, with Ohio State as the conference’s CFP representative.
Orange Bowl: Ohio State vs. Clemson (CFP semifinal)
Rose Bowl: Wisconsin vs. Oregon
Peach Bowl: Michigan State vs. Florida State
TaxSlayer Bowl: Nebraska vs. Ole Miss
Citrus Bowl: Penn State vs. Georgia
