Once again, TCU ground its way to a victory on the road. But Baylor continued to dominate. And with another impressive overall performance, the Bears finally moved into the playoff in our weekly bowl projections.
There were no other changes this week to the projections, though the bowl hopes of Kansas State and West Virginia have begun to teeter, as both fell to 0-3 in conference play. A bowl appearance for both could be on the line when the Mountaineers travel to Manhattan on Dec. 5 for their regular-season finale.
