BCS and Big Ten bowl projections-November 17

  • Print

Chaos reigns again in college football but this time both #1 and #2 go down.  Suddenly the SEC is alive again and we're a Notre Dame loss away from a potential second consecutive all-SEC national championship game.  Here's a look at my projected conference championship games, BCS and Big 10 bowls (asterisk denotes team has clinched a birth in title game):

Big 10 Championship: Wisconsin* vs Nebraska

SEC Championship: Georgia* vs Alabama

Pac 12 ChampionshipUCLA* vs Stanford

ACC Championship: Florida State* vs Miami


The four teams that have not clinched a title game birth yet all control their own destiny, which is bad news for Michigan, Texas A&M, LSU, Oregon and Georgia Tech.  Kansas State clinches the Big XII with a win or an Oklahoma loss.  The Big East is now firmly a two-way race between Louisville and Rutgers.


Rose Bowl: Stanford vs Nebraska

Fiesta Bowl: Kansas State vs Oregon

Sugar Bowl: LSU vs Oklahoma

Orange Bowl: Florida State vs Louisville

BCS Championship: Notre Dame vs Alabama


Capital One Bowl: Michigan vs Florida

Outback Bowl: Wisconsin vs Georgia

Gator Bowl: Northwestern vs Mississippi State

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl: Michigan State vs Texas Tech

Meineke Car Care Bowl: Minnesota vs Iowa State

Heart of Dallas Bowl: Purdue vs Ball State


As it stands, the Big 10 can have a maximum of seven bowl eligible teams.  However, both Michigan State and Purdue need a win to be eligible.
