There weren't any seismic shifts in the college football landscape this week, but we did see three teams -- Ole Miss, UCLA and Syracuse -- suffer their first loss of the season, while TCU, Oklahoma State and Clemson rallied for come-from-behind wins.

What does it all mean for the bowl picture? ESPN college football reporters Kyle Bonagura and Mark Schlabach break it all down with their latest projections for all the games, including their analysis of the CFP matchups, which teams helped and hurt their causes the most and what matchup they'd most like to see.
