The LSU Tigers are coming off a disappointing 5-5 campaign in 2020 but could be playing in the New Year's Six, according to Brad Crawford from 247Sports who unveiled Summer Bowl Projections this week.

PEACH BOWL (DEC. 30, 2021)
Projected matchup: LSU (at-large) vs. North Carolina (at-large)


One of these programs is getting substantially more love in the preseason than the other, but it feels like there's more pressure on North Carolina to field one of the nation's best teams than there is LSU, who is coming off an average campaign that followed the Tigers' run to a national title. LSU's major coaching staff changes should pay off for a team that's talented with 20 starters back. North Carolina welcomes back one of the top quarterbacks in the country in Sam Howell. Two teams who could also be in play for this matchup from the ACC and SEC include Miami and Texas A&M.
College Football Playoff projections:

ORANGE BOWL (DEC. 31, 2021)
Projected matchup: No. 1 Clemson vs. No. 4 Oklahoma

COTTON BOWL (DEC. 31, 2021)
Projected matchup: No. 2 Alabama vs. No. 3 Ohio State

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME (JAN. 10, 2022)
Projected matchup: No. 1 Clemson vs. No. 2 Alabama

I'd take it as I expect a 10-2 or 11-1 season. Hopefully UGA can go undefeated so Bama doesn't make the playoffs. I don't see Clemson losing to UNC though. I'm very intrigued by USC though. Miami is also a wildcard.

The Peach Bowl 2 years ago was glorious to see live. The OU fans actually thought they would win.

I don’t think Clemson wins the ACC this year...UNC is strong, FSU getting the transfer UCF QB Milton and having a quality coach will put them back on the map!

We will be back. I'd love the playoff, but an NY6 would be great. It is all about that o-line. If it is not us in the natty, please anyone other than Bama/Clemson. Hell give me UGA/OU, USC/UNC, anyone but Bama/Clemson.

Hmm, new qb for both the gumps and the fake tigers and they just pencil the same 2 teams in for the NCG. As Trump would say Fake News.

Bama lost a ton of players and their OC and the schedule is tougher than usual

At some point the coaching turn over and new players, regardless of stars, has to miss one year right?

So, wash and repeat? How courageous and daring. Way to put yourselves out there. The good news for everyone else is that the prognosticators have no clue what the end of a season yet to be played is going to look like.

It won't happen. Bama is in for some serious competition in the SEC. Clemson has their usual fraud of a Conference to win but I don't see them going past the first game in the CFP. This prediction is just "Chalk".

Bama aint going to be that great, Clemson will be good. I like our chances this year to win the SEC.

That's cute but I think it'll be a bowl that has a later date.

Agree. LSU is as talented as any team out there and that includes both Bama and Clemson.

It’s a NY6 bowl. That would be signify a very good season at likely 10-2 or 11-1
