College football bowl projections for Week 14 of the 2016 season. With its win over Michigan, Ohio State takes the coveted spot in the Fiesta Bowl.


The postseason picture is starting to come into focus.

With Thanksgiving in the rear view mirror, we have a better idea of how the postseason landscape will look when all of the matchups are officially announced next Sunday.

Ohio State has taken Michigan’s spot this week after the Buckeyes’ double-overtime win in Columbus, so Urban Meyer’s squad is projected to go to the Fiesta Bowl while Jim Harbaugh’s squad heads to Pasadena for a date in the Rose Bowl.

Meanwhile, we could see a Nick Saban-Chris Petersen coaching matchup in the Peach Bowl, which would be a fantastic meeting of the minds.

Where does your favorite team project to play this postseason?

Note I: An asterisk (*) denotes that the respective league did not have enough teams eligible to fill its bowl slot, thus it went to a team from a different league.

College Football Playoff Projections

Semifinal No. 1 – Fiesta Bowl

Date: Dec. 31
Location: Glendale, Arizona
Tie-ins: CFP No. 2/CFP No. 3
Fiesta Bowl Projection: No. 2 Clemson vs. No. 3 Ohio State

Dabo Swinney’s Tigers had an easy time with South Carolina in their annual showdown, so all eyes turn to their tricky date with Virginia Tech in the ACC title game.

Meanwhile, the Buckeyes played an instant classic against Michigan, as the Buckeyes prevailed at home in double overtime. Despite Urban Meyer’s  squad not having a chance to play for its own league crown, it would be awfully difficult for the CFP selection committee to pass up this squad.

Semifinal No. 2 – Peach Bowl

Date: Dec. 31
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Tie-ins: CFP No. 1/CFP No. 4
Peach Bowl Projection: No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Washington

Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide won their third straight Iron Bowl on Saturday behind the dual-threat abilities of quarterback Jalen Hurts and a nasty defense.

Meanwhile, the Huskies had an easy time against Washington State in the Apple Cup, so they will turn their attention to a very dangerous Colorado squad in the Pac-12 title game.

College Football National Championship Game

Date: Jan. 9
Location: Tampa, FL
Tie-ins: Semifinal winners
Championship Game Projection: No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 2 Clemson
