It's never too early to start talking about bowl games, right?
The 2014 college football season is almost here, and once the first kickoff is made the clock starts on teams trying to gain eligibility for what will be 76 bowl slots in December and January. There are actually 39 postseason games, but the last one will pit the winners of the Rose and Sugar bowls, which are doubling as the semifinals for the first College Football Playoff.
New games have popped up in Alabama, Florida (twice) and the Bahamas, while others have been renamed and many sport new tie-ins with different conferences. It's frankly far too much to try to sort out before the season has even started, but that's what we're here for.
Each game is projected based on its affiliation with different conferences, many of which will slot teams into certain bowls for matchup purposes and not necessarily in order of finish in their league. For games where a tied-in conference cannot meet its commitment, we have slotted in a projected bowl-eligible team from another league that had extra qualifiers to spare.
Take a look at Bleacher Report's complete predictions for every 2014-15 bowl game matchup, along with our projection of the College Football Playoff games and who will win the first FBS title determined through an actual tournament.
