An upset-filled Saturday didn't have a huge impact on the playoff and bowl projections of Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com.
Once again, Palm has a Big Ten team in the playoff. And that team is Ohio State slotted as the No. 4 seed and taking on No. 1 Alabama in the Peach Bowl–just like last week. Palm has No. 2 Clemson playing No. 3 Washington in the other playoff semifinal in the Fiesta Bowl-even though both Clemson and Washington lost last week.
Palm also still has three Big Ten teams in Bowl Selection Committee games.
Here is where Palm has Big Ten teams slotted for bowl games.
Ohio State: Peach vs. Alabama
Michigan: Orange vs. Louisville
Penn State: Cotton vs. San Diego State
Wisconsin: Rose vs. Utah
Nebraska: Outback vs. Auburn
Iowa: Music City vs. Arkansas
Indiana: Foster Farms vs. USC
Northwestern: Pinstripe vs. Pitt
Minnesota: Holiday vs. Washington State
Maryland: Quick Lane vs. Boston College
