It’s that time of year again. 

As we begin to approach bowl season in 2020, we feel a tad bit of abnormality with the Pac-12 just returning two weeks ago, and the regular season set to transition straight into bowl season. 

Nevertheless, the best time of the year is upon us, and we can’t wait to kick off bowl season a month from now. So you probably want projections, huh? Well, let’s give you them.
