Bowl projections 2.0

  • Print

Welcome to November and as is always the case in the world of college football expectations have changed since the start of the season.  I'm updating my bowl projections below but happy to report my preseason BCS pick of Alabama-Oregon remains alive.

The team to watch down the stretch is Fresno State.  The MWC is notably weak this year but the Bulldogs are in position to qualify for the BCS.  Fresno State needs to finish the season ranked 12th or higher in the BCS standings (currently they're 16th) or finish the year ranked 16th or higher but ahead of another automatic qualifier.  As it stands Fresno State is ranked ahead of AAC leader Central Florida.  If the Bulldogs don't qualify for the BCS a spot would be open for Clemson to likely play in the Sugar Bowl.
