College Football’s regular season is over and now all eyes are on the playoff committee and the subsequent bowls that churn out on Sunday afternoon.
Michigan needed help with Washington and/or Clemson losing to throw them back into the mix. That did not happen and now their postseason destination has become extremely clear.
Every major outlet currently has the Wolverines heading to the Orange Bowl to take on Florida State, though some still have Louisville in the mix for that Dec. 30 game. Ohio State is likely locked in to a playoff spot and Big Ten Champion Penn State (very weird to type that, truthfully) is Rose Bowl bound. Wisconsin appears headed for the Cotton Bowl against the Western Michigan Broncos.
We will see what Sunday brings, but expect the Wolverines to be announced as an Orange Bowl team when the assignments drop.
The playoff will be set at 12:30 p.m. ET and the New Year’s Six bowl pairings will be out at 2:30 pm. ET.
