FSU QB Jameis Winston talks about how he and Jimbo Fisher communicate.

We had an idea that the bowl projections would have a lot of erasing this weekend, but not sure anyone expected this.

UPDATED: Arkansas State accepted a bowl invitation to the GoDaddy.com Bowl, as we projected and Tulane accepted an invite to New Orleans bowl to play La.-Lafayette - which was also as we projected. 

Auburn's stunning defeat of No. 1 Alabama will grab the headlines and with reason, it was a game changer - but not for the victorious Tigers.

We still see Auburn in the Sugar Bowl, though now the Tigers will go to NOLA as the SEC champ to meet AAC champion UCF.

Alabama most likely saw its hopes of a third consecutive title dashed, but we still see them BCS bound, heading to Miami to face Clemson, who gets in despite a fifth-straight loss to South Carolina.

Ohio State, who beat rival Michigan, is the biggest benefactor of the Auburn upset, moving into the title game to play Florida State. The Seminoles easily dispatched of Florida and are expected to be the No. 1 team in the country heading into championship game weekend.

The rest of the projections appear below, where is your school going?
