College football bowl projections for Week 11: Clemson out of Playoff for now

There are two weeks left until the first set of College Football Playoff rankings are unveiled, but the four-team picture is starting to come into focus.

Notre Dame jumps into our College Football Playoff after a thrilling 47-40 double-overtime victory against Clemson on Saturday. The Tigers are squeezed out for the time being, but a potential rematch in the ACC championship with Trevor Lawrence still looms. Alabama, Ohio State and Oregon remain in our four-team Playoff.

Florida replaced Georgia in our New Year’s Day Six after beating the Bulldogs 44-28.

This season’s semifinals are Jan. 1 at the Rose Bowl Game and Sugar Bowl. The Playoff championship game will be Jan. 11 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.

With that in mind, here are Sporting News’ picks for the College Football Playoff and New Year’s Day Six heading into Week 11:
