Let's take a look.

2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup: Championship Predictions

While we have had all-or-nothing races for the championship throughout the history of the Sprint Cup Series, this is the first real championship race. Four drivers are still alive from the initial 16 drivers back at Chicagoland in September with their dreams of a championship intact and they are Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano and Ryan Newman. Who will be the one that will win it all this Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway?

2014-15 Bowl Projections: Week 12

It looks like we may have a controversy brewing already for the Selection Committee for the inaugural College Football Playoff, and it surrounds the Big 12. TCU, after an impressive win over Kansas State on Saturday night, sits at fourth in the rankings. Baylor, who blew out Oklahoma on Saturday, sits in seventh. It looks like it both teams win out, TCU would get to the playoff but here's the issue: Baylor beat them head-to-head and if both win out, Baylor, not TCU, will be the conference champion. TCU does have one relatively notable non-conference wins vs. Minnesota, but they also struggled to beat Oklahoma when Baylor crushed them. How much will the committee value head-to-head results, and conference championships? Still to be determined, quite frankly.

Something else of note from the rankings: Oregon jumping Florida State despite having a loss. The Seminoles have not looked all that impressive, but they still have yet to lose.

With all of that in mind, here are my bowl projections for this week.
