Last year, I went through every bowl game, and made picks. It was a pain. This year, I’m only picking the New Years Six bowls. Before I jump into that, let’s identify the playoff contenders in each of the Power 5 conference, plus my non-Power 5 contenders.
Big 12: TCU, Baylor
Big Ten: Michigan State, Ohio State
ACC: Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida State
Pac-12: Oregon, Stanford, USC
SEC: Georgia, Alabama, Auburn
Non Power 5 contenders: Notre Dame, Boise State
Now let’s recap the Conference winners, since they’ll get first look at a playoff spot.
Big 12: TCU
Big Ten: Ohio State
Non Power 5 contender records:
Notre Dame: 9-3, Boise State: 10-2
Alright, I’m gonna predict the New Years Six Matchups, and the National Championship. I won’t pick a National Champion, however.
New Year’s Six:
Peach Bowl: Clemson-Stanford
Sugar Bowl: Baylor-Alabama
Rose Bowl: Michigan State-Oregon
Fiesta Bowl: Boise State-Auburn
Semifinal #1 vs. #4: Ohio State-Georgia
Semifinal #2 vs. #3: TCU-USC
Championship: #1 Ohio State-#2 TCU

Let’s hope for an awesome college football season. Again, there is no What To Watch For or Sucks To Be You for Week 1 due to the lack of top 25 matchups and myself being out of town for Labor Day weekend. All regular content will resume in Week 2. Have a good Labor Day weekend….
