Updated Bowl Projections

With some teams (like WVU and Texas) losing this past weekend, the whole bowl landscape changed. Not in an overly dramatic way but in a more stuttle way. We have a new number two in the land (USC) and one team (Michigan) is still hoping for a rematch.

Without further adu, I will present my second round of bowl projections here. I hope I don’t project one team to two bowls again like I did with Ohio. Some bowls changed, while others remained the same.

Again, teams in bold have accepted the bid.

Again, I hope I didn’t use a team twice but with 32 bowl games and lots of differnet directional colleges in Michigan, Ohio and everywhere else inbetween, it can be tough to put one in twice or leave someone out. But that’s the way I am reading into things right now. One more week of football and we will have a greater understanding of where things will offically stand.
