College football bowl projections for Week 7: Cincinnati, Ohio State enter the playoffs

Sporting News will have bowl projections every week from now until the CFP Selection Show on December 5th.

The bowl season returns in 2021-22 with a schedule that includes 42 bowl games between FBS teams. This year’s College Football Playoff Championship game is Jan. 10 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The semifinals are Dec. 31 at the Capital One Orange Bowl and Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic.

These projections are for how we think the rest of the regular season will play out.

For now, Alabama is out of the College Football Playoff. Crimson Tide could, of course, work its way back, but that would require winning and beating Georgia in the SEC championship game. We design Dawgs as SEC masters.

In the big ten, we like Ohio State. Probably Iowa is ranked No. 2 and undefeated. But we think the Buckeyes will win the Big Ten championship game in Indy and slip into the CFP again.

All of this, of course, benefits Cincinnati, who need help breaking into the field. The Alabama loss was a start.
