CBS Sports updated its 2021 bowl projections after another wild week of upsets. As Clemson continues to fall and Arkansas continues to rise, everything appears upside down in the college football world. The only certainty this season appears to be the uncertainty from week to week.

The new projections retain the four College Football Playoff teams from last week, dropping Clemson outside the New Year’s Day party. Cincinnati remains the top Group of Five team as Arkansas moves to the bubble of the College Football Playoff with its second ranked win against a Texas school.
