Week 7 didn't see the number of upsets we've come to expect this season, but it did have one biggie -- unranked Purdue knocking off No. 2 Iowa. Plus six ranked teams went down to defeat, so there was plenty of room for shuffling the bowl picture.
In addition to predicting the matchups for every bowl game, Mark Schlabach and Kyle Bonagura provide analysis on their playoff picks, most intriguing bowl matchup, fast-rising teams that could make a New Year's Six push and teams that helped or hurt their cause the most.

Schlabach's most intriguing matchup: They might have to add a third digit to the scoreboard in Jerry World if the Buckeyes and Sooners meet up in a CFP semifinal at the Cotton Bowl. Oklahoma freshman quarterback Caleb Williams' first start went about as well as it could have, with him completing 18 of 23 passes for 295 yards with four touchdowns and running for 66 yards with one more score in a 52-31 win against TCU. The concern, once again, is that OU's defense surrendered 529 yards and 31 points against the Horned Frogs. In the last two games alone, the Sooners have been gashed for 1,045 yards of offense and 79 points by Texas and TCU. Ohio State's offense, with quarterback C.J. Stroud and one of the better receiver corps in the country, is even better than the Sooners'.
