Conference championship weekend is in the books, and Selection Sunday is looming with the final College Football Playoff rankings set to be revealed.
One thing is for sure: Auburn will not be among the top four teams to make the playoff field after falling in the SEC Championship Game, 28-7, to Georgia on Saturday in Atlanta.
With its playoff hopes thwarted, where could Auburn (10-3) end up for its bowl game this season? The Tigers are a virtual lock for a New Year’s Six bowl this season, but which one remains to be seen.
Based on the final bowl projections from experts and national media, Auburn appears to likely be heading back to Atlanta for the Peach Bowl on Jan. 1 against UCF. Below is a look at the final bowl projections from national pundits:
