    November 6, 2018

    West Virginia’s win at Texas vaults the Mountaineers into my New Year’s 6 bowl projections this week.

    My projected College Football Playoff field remains the same from the past couple of weeks: Alabama, Clemson, Michigan and Notre Dame.

    UCF still remains my pick to be the highest-ranked Group of 5 champion, but if the Knights slip up, look for the Mountain West champ – either Utah State or Fresno State – to earn a spot in the Fiesta Bowl.
