College football’s regular season is basically over, with only the conference title games left to play this weekend.

The final early College Football Playoff rankings will come out Tuesday night, with the official matchups getting announced Sunday.

The rest of the bowl games will be announced then, too. Despite its loss to Ohio State on Saturday, Michigan (10-2) still has hope for a Rose Bowl berth. If OSU makes the CFP, Michigan State could rise up to the Outback Bowl despite a 7-5 record. So where’s everyone headed? Here’s what the national experts are projecting:
