*Projections assume the highest rated team from a conference as that conference's champion. Since there are currently 11 FBS conferences and not the 10 there will be when the playoffs take effect, only 10 projected conference leaders are used in the projections. If the projected WAC Champion is rated higher than the projected Champion of the conference that that team will belong to when the playoffs take effect, then they are included in the projection (i.e. Louisiana Tech rated higher than current C-USA leader).
