College Football Playoff, bowl predictions: Paths for seven remaining contenders

 

The wild process of college football bowl game selections is now in the books as 78 of the 130 FBS teams have been chosen to fill slots in 39 postseason contests. It all started with the announcement of the four College Football Playoff teams and continued with the release of the final CFP Rankings and rest of the New Year's Six games. After that, every bowl game trickled in until every spot was filled.

LSU jumped Ohio State for the No. 1 spot in the CFP with Clemson and Oklahoma rounding out the four-team field in that order. LSU is making its first CFP appearance, while Clemson is in its fifth straight playoff. Ohio State is in the field for the third time, while Oklahoma is in its fourth playoff, third straight.

Check out the complete CFP field along with the New Year's Six bowl games and the rest of the bowl games. Alabama vs. Michigan is the top non-major bowl game as the powerhouse matchup will take place in the Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day. CBS Sports was be with you the entire day updating this page with every new bowl game announcement as the process unfolded.
