There’s nothing like some playoff speak in Might! 247Sports not too long ago posted its up to date school soccer New Yr’s Six bowl projections heading into the summer time.
For probably the most half within the school soccer world this yr, there’s a consensus on what packages are within the prime tier. Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma and Notre Dame.
However in terms of the New Yr’s Six, it’s extra about what groups have the perfect path to the playoffs and which groups may miss out on a top-4 spot whereas staying within the combine for a type of six particular bowl video games.
Right here is 247Sports’ greatest guess on what which will seem like for 2021…
Ohio State and Alabama make the playoffs and face off within the Cotton Bowl, whereas Oklahoma meets Clemson within the Orange bowl for the opposite playoff recreation.
That leaves Georgia out of the top-4 and going through Iowa State within the Sugar Bowl, with LSU going through North Carolina within the Peach Bowl, Notre Dame versus Coastal Carolina within the Fiesta Bowl and USC versus Wisconsin within the Rose Bowl.
These predictions are a superb guess however we have now to remember the fact that Georgia has a blueprint to make a remaining 4 spot. Except the Bulldogs drop one to Clemson in week-1 in Charlotte and one other one within the SEC Championship versus Alabama, you’d be onerous press to have UGA out of a prime spot. After all, that relies upon largely on Clemson and Alabama’s seasons.
If the Tigers and Crimson Tide dominate, Georgia may nonetheless make it in with a detailed loss to each groups. But when UGA beats Clemson and wins out. Georgia may very well be headed into the SEC Championship versus Bama in an ideal state of affairs. Image this, an undefeated Georgia with a win over Clemson in opposition to an undefeated Alabama… So long as the Bulldogs don’t lose by 40, UGA is in.
