Sometimes change doesn't happen at the top. It often comes at the level below. That's the case in this week's bowl projections.
Impressive wins by Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Ohio State kept the College Football Playoff field in tact as we near the halfway mark of the season. Both the Buckeyes and Fighting Irish had moved into their spots last week.
However, some upsets in the top 10 altered the rest of the major bowls.
Oklahoma and LSU are out after losses. Florida and Oregon move in with the Ducks expected to take the Pac-12's berth in the Rose Bowl and Washington slipping to the Fiesta. The two conference rivals meet this week in Eugene. The Gators took down the Tigers and jumped into the Peach Bowl spot previously occupied by their SEC rival.
