Week 12 is in the books following one of the most impactful weeks of college football all year. ESPN has updated its bowl projections to reflect the big results.
Between Tua Tagovailoa’s season-ending injury for Alabama and Minnesota and Baylor both seeing their unbeaten runs snapped, there will likely be a lot of changes to the College Football Playoff and bowl game projections.
