While the echoes of cheering fans and the unmistakable crunch of shoulder pads begin to fade, the college football postseason is on the horizon.

College Football Bowl Projections After Rivalry Week

Let's explore some of the most captivating matchups based on the current college football landscape.

College Football Playoff Predictions

Monday, January 8th

CFP National Championship

Georgia vs Michigan

The matchup that everyone's waiting for.

Georgia and Michigan have been the two top teams in the country all season. After last year's upset loss at the hands of TCU, the Wolverines will be more motivated than ever to make their first appearance in the College Football Playoff National Championship game.

With Georgia failing to impress in victories against teams like Georgia Tech and Missouri, Michigan may even enter the College Football National Championship as slight favorites.

Monday, January 1st

Rose Bowl CFP Semifinal

Michigan vs Washington

JJ McCarthy and Michigan Wolverines moved back into second in the College Football Playoff rankings after a third straight victory in "The Game". Jim Harbaugh's team led throughout despite missing their leader on the sidelines. The Wolverines suffocating defense and dominate offensive line have oddsmakers tabbing them as favorites to win the College Football National Championship heading into the postseason.

Meanwhile, the Washington Huskies eked out a victory over Washington State during rivalry week. A Grady Gross field goal at the buzzer was enough for the Huskies to scrape past the Cougars. Michael Penix Jr. will be desperate to prove last week was simply a bump in the road in a rematch with the Oregon Ducks. This week's showdown in Las Vegas will effectively be a College Football Playoff eliminator,

Allstate Sugar Bowl CFP Semifinal

Georgia vs Florida State

Despite a devastating injury to star quarterback Jordan Travis, the path to the College Football Playoff remains simply for the Florida State Seminoles. Beat Louisville in the ACC Championship game and you're in. An undefeated season would be enough to force playoff votes to include a strong Seminoles squad.

For Kirby Smart's squad it's business as usual. Handle Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship and book a third straight trip to the College Football Playoff. Then attempt to make history as the first team in nearly a century to win three straight College Football National Championships.

Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic

Texas vs Penn State

Longhorns fans will be miffed to miss out on the playoff. However, Texas' upset loss to Oklahoma keeps them out of the final four.

Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl

Alabama vs Tulane

After the highs of a late 4th & 31 touchdown and late victory in the Iron Bowl, the Alabama Crimson Tide will be disappointed to only get a Peach Bowl ticket as a consolation. However, Nick Saban's team simply wasn't up to par with the top teams in college football this season. The Peach Bowl is a predictable landing spot for the Crimson Tide.
