Bowl Predictions

  • Print

I decided to step my game up and predict who will go bowling this college football season but before I begin a few observations.  First, this is not a recommended activity.  It's not too difficult predicting who will finish third in the Big 10 or SEC but predicting who will finish third in the MAC or Conference USA is enough to make you lose sleep.  Second, there are 35 bowls this year, meaning 70 teams will play in the postseason.  It is very entirely that a few non-bowl eligible 5-7 teams will get invited to go bowling.  72 teams were bowl eligible last year, including four 6-6 teams who did not play in a bowl.  So without further ado on this first Saturday of September:
