Three teams from one conference make the CFP in latest bowl game prediction

Alabama football has one goal in 2023: to compete for a national championship. In order to do that, the team must make the College Football Playoff. This season, the two bowl games that will serve as the semi-finals are the Rose Bowl and the Sugar Bowl.

It’s worth noting that this will be the last season of a four-team playoff. Expansion begins next year when 12 teams will make the playoffs and all six New Year’s bowl games will host semi-final matchups.

Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports recently put together a list of compelling storylines to look out for during the upcoming college football season. On that list were a few preseason bowl game projections.

For the College Football Playoff, Dodd has Michigan vs. Ohio State in the Rose Bowl and Georgia vs. Penn State. A whopping three Big Ten teams make the playoffs, according to Dodd.

Notably missing is Alabama.

Dodd has the Crimson Tide facing off against the fast-rising Seminoles of Florida State in the Orange Bowl. While it’s a highly-respected bowl game that most programs would be honored to play in, it would be somewhat of a letdown for Alabama fans, as it means the team missed the CFP for the second season in a row.

There’s plenty of time before then and a lot will change, but it’s interesting to see how the Tide are expected to perform and ultimately finish the season.
