The AP Predicted 2015-16 College Football Playoff Field, Every Bowl Game Match-up

We're a few months away from the kick-off of the 2015-16 college football season, but publications are well on their way predicting and projecting every possible angle that this fall could bring. The AP's Ralph D. Russo went as far as to project the upcoming College Football Playoff, as well as every bowl game that will be played this post-season. As we saw from week-to-week last year, the playoff may prove to be unpredictable. We'll have to check back in on Russo's work once December rolls around.
