The College Football Playoff picture has come into sharper focus with Michigan’s decisive win over Ohio State and upset losses by LSU (to Texas A&M) and Clemson (to South Carolina).

The reverberations from those results were felt in the New Year’s Six matchups and beyond, as we are pretty much down to the conference championships before the bowl lineup is set once and for all.

ESPN college football reporters Kyle Bonagura and Mark Schlabach break down the bowl picture with their latest projections for all the games, including their analysis of the CFP matchups, which teams helped and hurt their causes the most, and which matchup they’d most like to see.

All times Eastern.
