CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm has put together projections for all of college football’s postseason bowls, which at this point is quite an undertaking.
Palm predicts Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Clemson and Alabama will make the College Football Playoff, which is three out of four of last season’s participants, with the exception of Michigan State.
Instead, he has the Spartans playing Dec. 31 against Tennessee in the Citrus Bowl. The Volunteers are getting a lot of preseason hype and could prove a worthy opponent if this prediction measures out.
Here’s where he has the rest of the Big 10:
Rose: Ohio State vs. Stanford
Outback: Michigan vs. Ole Miss
Music City: Nebraska vs. Auburn
Foster Farms: Northwestern vs. USC
Pinstripe: Louisville vs. Wisconsin
Holiday: Penn State vs. Oregon
Heart of Dallas: Indiana vs. Western Kentucky
Quick Lane: Toledo vs. Maryland
Armed Forces: Minnesota vs. Navy
