Bonus pick: The Sporting News still has Penn State third in their CFP rankings, just ahead of Washington, and behind No. 2 Clemson and No. 1 Alabama. They stay with their prediction of Penn State playing Clemson in the Rose Bowl.

SB Nation’s Kirk again stays with his Orange Bowl pick and opponent.

The ESPN writers now agree on the CFP bowl game and location, but differ on the opponent.

Palm of CBS Sports moves Penn State into the CFP, and believes Penn State will face the Tide in New Orleans.

Finally, Sports Illustrated keeps their Sugar Bowl/Alabama pick.
