Brad’s 26th Annual College Football Bowl Projections

For the 26th consecutive season, I have created a projection of what the bowl games will look like when the full lineup is released on Sunday December 20th.  I am having to publish these much sooner relative to the conclusion of the regular season this year because of the fact that bowl games are already extending bids based on the condensed Covid postseason format. In fact, the bowl season will actually begin before the regular season ends this season, as the Frisco Bowl will kickoff an hour before the SEC Championship on Saturday December 19th. Obviously, the bowl season will look nothing like it usually does due to Covid-19.  Please feel free to comment or debate these predictions.
