Conference Championship Analysis- Final Edition

For the twelfth season, I have published weekly columns late in the month of November which analyze all of  he FBS conference championship races. Like my bowl bubble watch, there is not really a column like this on any other mainstream college football site.  This list is updated through all games played on November 28, 2021.

Big Ten EastMichigan (Harbaugh finally gets the Wolverines over the hump!) 

Big Ten West–  Iowa (Well, we all thought we were going to get Ohio State/Wisconsin in next weekend’s Big Ten Title Game and instead we end up with Iowa vs. Michigan.  The Wolverines will be trying to qualify for their first CFP ever and Iowa will be playing for a spot in just their second Rose Bowl in the 30 years.)
