  • As every big game of Week 13 goes final, this live look at the 2018–19 bowl picture will be adjusted to reflect the postseason consequences.

It’s the last fully loaded Saturday of the 2018 college football regular season, and by the end of this weekend we’ll have a much better sense of the postseason picture. Only Notre Dame can truly clinch its spot in the final four with a Week 13 win, but Alabama and Clemson can take a big step in that direction by taking down their in-state rivals, and the New Year's Six lineup should get much clearer once every conference title game matchup is set.

Where is your team heading next month? Below, a look at the latest projections for all 39 bowl matchups and the updated College Football Playoff field, adjusted after all of Week 13’s results. With one week to go, the FBS has 81 teams with six wins or more, meaning that at least three eligible teams won’t be going bowling (and Liberty and Virginia Tech can add to the pool if they win their final games next weekend). An asterisk (*) denotes that an at-large team is filling a spot left vacant by the conference under contract with that bowl. Matchups in bold have been confirmed and announced by the bowls themselves.
