As of Wednesday, we’re 56 days from Michigan (at Utah) and Minnesota (vs. TCU) kicking off the 2015 college football season. Now that we’ve reached the under-two-month mark, Athlon Sports has released its preseason bowl projections. The publication likes the Big Ten, too, putting all but three of the conference’s teams in the postseason, including reigning national champ Ohio State in the second annual College Football National Championship Game. See Athlon’s full Big Ten breakdown below: Cotton/College Football National Championship: Ohio State vs. Alabama Rose: Michigan State vs. USC Citrus: Wisconsin vs. Tennessee Outback: Nebraska vs. Arkansas Holiday: Penn State
In just a couple of hours, the College Football Playoff selection committee will make it official. Will Ohio State make it? See what some of the nation's expert think inside.
Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com has his latest bowl projections out, with only the Big Ten title game left. Can’t imagine things will change much from here on out. Palm, a Purdue grad who played in the marching band, has 10 Big Ten teams in the postseason, with Michigan, Northwestern, Indiana and Purdue the only schools out. Palm has no Big Ten teams in the playoffs, but three are in “selection committee” bowls—up from one last week. Here is how Palm lines up the Big Ten. Cotton: Ohio State vs. Arizona Peach: Michigan State vs. TCU Fiesta: Wisconsin vs. Boise State

Michigan State’s loss to Ohio State likely killed any shot the Big Ten has to earn a playoff spot. Yes, the Buckeyes could get it in, but it will take a lot for that to happen.
Week 10 is in the books, and I still have Michigan State in the Rose Bowl Game of my latest Big Ten Bowl Projections. Check out my complete list inside.
Michigan State rolls on, so I am keeping them in the playoffs as a No. 3 seed playing in the Rose Bowl, this week vs. No. 2 Alabama.
Michigan State’s playoff stock continues to rise following another win. This week, I have the Spartans (6-1, 3-0) as a No. 3 seed playing in the Rose Bowl vs. No. 2 Ole Miss.
Week by week, Michigan State is building a strong resume. And it’s strong enough now—coupled with the goings-on across the nation—to slot the Spartans into the playoff.
