Sometimes things stay the same. That's the case with this week's bowl projections after Week 2 of the college football season.

There are no major adjustments for the forecast of the College Football Playoff field as Clemson cleared what might be their toughest hurdle on its journey by beating Texas A&M. Alabama, Oklahoma and Ohio State also made easy work of overmatched competition.

LSU moved closer to contention with its defeat of Texas, but the Tigers still face a difficult road and a trip to the Crimson Tide in November. The loss by Texas shouldn't damage its chance to return to the Sugar Bowl and a rematch with Georgia.

The big adjustment comes with the Rose Bowl. Washington's surprising loss to California and Michigan's narrow escape against Army have both teams sliding out.  Moving in to take their places are Utah and Penn State, which are off to impressive starts.

College fooball: Big Ten, SEC leading non-conference success .
September in college football is a time for conferences to play against each other. The Big Ten and SEC have been the top performers in those games.While an underachieving ACC wouldn't keep Clemson out of the College Football Playoff — should the Tigers run through conference play unbeaten, as currently expected — the view of the Pac-12, for example, could impact whether the conference gets a one-loss champion into the national semifinals. That's especially true if other Power Five leagues put forth a one-loss winner, as has often been the case during the Playoff era.
