College football bowl projections Week 14: Utah, Oklahoma, Alabama in Playoff hunt

Sporting News’ Week 14 bowl projections are here in time for the fourth set of College Football Playoff rankings, which will be unveiled on Tuesday.

The Playoff picture saw some major changes after Oregon’s loss to Arizona State. That opens up a wide-open debate for the No. 4 final spot.

For now, SN has Oklahoma in the final spot. Utah and Alabama will have a strong case, but the Sooners might get the edge with a Big 12 championship, buoyed by potential quality wins against Oklahoma State and Baylor the next two weeks. All this assumes Georgia loses in the SEC championship game to LSU.

That would put LSU and Oklahoma in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl and Clemson and Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl.
