The College Football News bowl projections, and the predictions for the College Football Playoff after Week 4.


Well this just got a whole lot more interesting.

Not only will almost everyone be back late in the season, but the normal bowl rules are likely going to be out the window.

The RedBox (Big Ten vs. Pac-12) has already decided not to have a bowl, but the the NCAA recommendation that records not matter for bowl eligibility this year, now everyone should be able to fill in their contracted bowl ties.

This is still going to be as fluid as any bowl season ever, but now the Big Ten, Pac-12, MAC and Mountain West are back in the mix.

Remember, records almost certainly aren’t going to matter this year.
