College football bowl projections for Week 13: Ohio State vs. Cincinnati in the semis?

There are just two weeks left in the college football season, and the race for the four playoff spots comes down to eight teams.

That will play out this weekend among four of them. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State meet in Bedlam in a battle of fringe College Football Playoff contenders. Ohio State meets Michigan in The Game, which is a de facto elmination game with the winner going to the Big Ten championship game.

Of course, Alabama-Georgia is on the horizon, and Cincinnati is trying to hold off Notre Dame despite already having a head-to-head victory.

As it stands, Sporting News sees the playoff picture unfolding like this. Alabama could lose to Georgia, but the Crimson Tide will slip in as the No. 4 team and get a rematch. Ohio State and Cincinnati get the other spots and meet in a No. 2 vs. No. 3 matchup that will draw high ratings in the Buckeye (or Bearcat) State.

Our bowl projection is for how we believe the rest of the season will play out.
