The College Football Playoff chase is sure to heat up in October.Heading into Week 6, our College Football Playoff picks have not changed, but we switched the matchups.We have No. 1 Alabama meeting No. 5 Clemson in the CFP semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, and that means No. 2 Georgia and No. 3 Ohio State would be in the other semifinal in the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl. Why is this significant? If the SEC gets two teams, then the conference champion is going to want that semifinal in Atlanta. Granted, Clemson would not be affected that much, but it is something to watch as long as the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs stay unbeaten.MORE | No. 4 Michigan and No. 6 USC are the next two teams, and we have them in the Rose Bowl. No. 7 Oklahoma State jumps into our New Years Day projections after beating Baylor 36-25 in Week 5.The College Football Playoff semifinals will be on Dec. 31 this season. Those semifinals will be played at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta and the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. The College Football Playoff championship game is on Jan. 9 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.MORE: DATEBOWLMATCHUPDec. 16Bahamas BowlRice vs. Miami, OhioDec. 16Cure BowlMarshall vs. Kent StateDec. 17Wasabi Fenway BowlHouston vs. South Carolina*Dec. 17New Mexico BowlBYU vs. Air ForceDec. 17Jimmy Kimmel LA BowlUNLV vs. ArizonaDec. 17Lending Tree BowlToledo vs. Georgia SouthernDec. 17Las Vegas BowlWashington vs. Mi si sippi StateDec. 17Frisco BowlMTSU vs. East CarolinaDec. 19Myrtle Beach BowlUTEP vs. Old DominionDec. 20Famous Idaho Potato BowlBuffalovs. Boise StateDec. 20Boca Raton BowlTulane vs. UTSADec. 21New Orleans BowlNorth Texas vs. South AlabamaDec. 22Armed Forces BowlTexas Tech vs. LibertyDec. 23Independence BowlArmy vs. UCFDec. 23Gasparilla BowlSMU vs. WyomingDec. 24Hawaii BowlWestern Kentucky vs. San Jose StateDec. 26Quick Lane BowlCentral Michigan vs. Michigan StateDec. 27Camellia BowlWestern Michigan vs. Appalachian StateDec. 27First Responder BowlKansas State vs. Washington StateDec. 27Birmingham BowlCincinnati vs. DukeDec. 27Guaranteed Rate BowlTexas vs. WisconsinDec. 28Military BowlMiami, Fla.vs. MemphisDec. 28Liberty BowlKansas vs. Texas A&MDec. 28Holiday BowlUCLA vs. SyracuseDec. 28Texas BowlOklahoma vs. FloridaDec. 29Pinstripe BowlMinnesotavs. PittDec. 29Cheez-It BowlBaylor vs. North CarolinaDec. 29Alamo BowlTCU vs. OregonDec. 30Duke's Mayo BowlIowa vs. Notre DameDec. 30Tony the Tiger Sun BowlOregon State vs. Florida StateDec. 30Gator BowlWake Forest vs. ArkansasDec. 30Arizona BowlBall State vs. San Diego StateDec. 31Music City BowlPurdue vs. LSUJan. 2Tampa Bay BowlMaryland vs. KentuckyJan. 2Citrus BowlIllinois vs. Ole Mi s DATEBOWLMATCHUPDec. 30Capital One Orange BowlNC State vs. Penn StateDec. 31Allstate Sugar BowlOklahoma State vs. Tenne seeJan. 2Goodyear Cotton BowlCoastal Carolina vs. UtahJan. 2Rose Bowl GameMichigan vs. USCDec. 31Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl (semifinal)Alabama vs. ClemsonDec. 31Fiesta Bowl (semifinal)Ohio State vs. Georgia DATEBOWLMATCHUPJan. 11CFP championship gameAlabama vs. Ohio State
