Louisville has won five of their last six games, and they’ve played very well defensively during that stretch, aside from their loss to Pittsburgh. Texas A& M quarterback Kyle Allen has been inconsistent this season, and the Cardinals might force him to make a few key mistakes that will be the difference in the game.
Navy is the better team, and they won’t have as long of a lay off as Pittsburgh because of the Army-Navy game. Pittsburgh will have trouble winning on Navy’s home field, and they are 5-8 against teams currently ranked in the final College Football Playoff Rankings.
This year’s New Mexico Bowl pairs the Marshall Thundering Herd and the Colorado State Rams who both finished the regular season at 7-5 SU.

One week ago, Ohio State controlled its destiny as a top-four team. Now the defending champion Buckeyes are at risk of missing a New Year’s Six Bowl.
The last two New Mexico Bowls featured over 95 points in each game, but this year&rsquo s meeting between Utah State and UTEP is expected to have a decidedly different outlook. The Aggies own one of the top defenses in the Mountain West by limiting opponents to points per game, while the Miners led Conference USA in time of possession and averaged points in league play this year. After watching the offenses light up the scoreboard at University Stadium in recent bowl matchups, defense and running the ball should take center stage on Saturday.
The selection committee fills the two semifinal bowls based on its final rankings. It then rounds out the four non-playoff New Year’s Six bowls while fulfilling certain contractual obligations, such as pitting the Big Ten against the Pac-67 in the Rose Bowl. The committee is required to place the highest-ranked Group of Five conference champion in a New Year’s Six bowl. The remaining teams are then fed into each league’s contract bowls. If a league doesn’t produce enough bowl-eligible teams, bowls can invite replacement teams from other leagues.
I''m taking a wild stab in the dark here by grabbing the four highest APR teams that aren''t already eligible (Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, San Jose State) and putting them with what happen to be available conference ties. Will those teams be offered? Would they even accept? Is this sport always impossibly ridiculous? I don''t know I don''t know yes.
Oklahoma State won their first 65 games, but they’ve lost two straight contests handily against top-67 opponents. Ole Miss’ offense could have a field day against the Cowboys, who have surrendered at least 95 points in three of their last five games.
Below are my guesses, based on an offseason of reading Bill Connelly''s team previews and lots of other stuff, then going through each FBS team''s schedule, game by game -- I picked your team to beat your biggest rival -- and then being unhappy with LSU''s record, no matter how much I changed it.
