College football bowl projections after Week 9

We're now into November, with the usual suspects continuing to make their push for the College Football Playoff.

Alabama dominated a hapless Mississippi State team, while a Trevor Lawrence-less Clemson squad and Ohio State added to their win totals.


The biggest blow came to Oklahoma State, which lost a heartbreaker in OT against rival Texas. How did this affect the bowl outlook for this season? Kyle Bonagura and Mark Schlabach make their projections.
