The Duel's Week 11 college football bowl projections for the College Football Playoff and New Year's Six Bowl Games in 2018-19.

The Michigan Wolverines have dethroned Ohio State for the biggest shakeup from The Duel's Week 10 College Football Playoff bowl projections, and the Wolverines earned it. Michigan has now defeated three consecutive ranked Big-Ten opponents, outscoring them by a 101-27 advantage. The Wolverines are even looking like -3.5-point favorites in an early line prediction of their Week 13 battle with Ohio State in Columbus.

We're predicting Notre Dame to lose at some point before the season ends in this scenario, which would leave them out of the CFP.

Unlike the four College Football Playoff spots, the remaining New Year's Six bowl games saw quite a bit of shakeup from Week 10 to 11. After blowing a seven-point lead to West Virginia in the final seconds of Saturday's matchup in Austin, the Texas Longhorns have completely fallen out of the NY6 bowl projections while the Mountaineers replaced them in the Sugar Bowl. 


The Week 11 Peach Bowl projection features two completely different teams as well, as the LSU Tigers were replaced by the UCF Knights and Penn State with Kentucky on either end of the at-large bids.
