College Football Bowl Projections for Week 10

With the calendar hitting November, there are only five more weeks of college football remaining.

There are currently 36 bowl-eligible teams (82 bowl teams are needed) with 12 teams mathematically unable to get to six wins, while the remaining 82 FBS teams are still alive to reach bowl eligibility.

Based on my projections, I believe there will be enough six-win teams to fill all 82 bowl spots.

On Tuesday night, the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season will be revealed, providing some insight on which teams the selection committee values regarding the playoff.

Each College Football projection includes the point spread for each game based on Action Network senior writer Collin Wilson’s updated college football betting power ratings.
