CFB Bowl Projections

Blue Line Media ImageThe College Football Playoff rankings revealed Tuesday night gave us a good hint as to where bands will be headed for their bowl trips. With conference championships games still on tap for this weekend there is potential for some movement if there are major upsets at the top of the rankings, but the majority of bowl match-ups are starting to come in to focus.
