With the latest batch of College Football Playoff rankings released by the selection committee today, here is what the full New Year's Six slate would look like.

Heather Dinich, ESPN's College Football Playoff reporter, released her projection for all of the New Year's Six Bowls, if the season ended today.

We know what the two playoff semifinal games would look like. As of now, Miami would host Clemson in the Rose Bowl, though that match-up will be played in the ACC Championship and is unlikely to be repeated. No. 1 Alabama would face No. 4 Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl.

The other New Year's Six games, per Dinich's projections:

12/29: Ohio State vs. Notre Dame (Cotton Bowl, Arlington, TX)

12/30: USC vs. Wisconsin (Fiesta Bowl, Phoenix)

12/30: Virginia Tech vs. Auburn (Orange Bowl, Miami)

1/1: UCF vs. Georgia (Peach Bowl, Atlanta)

That's not a bad lineup, especially that Friday night Ohio State-Notre Dame shootout. Of course, there is still a ton to be decided over the next two weeks.
