BCS Ntl Championship: Oklahoma vs Florida
- Question:-Where can I find CURRENT NCAA Football bowl projections?
Most of the bowl projections online are preseason ones. Where can I find current ones? Thanks.
- Question:-Does anyone have the time and the insight to make Bowl Projections?
Also could you explain how the Bowl system works in a nutshell. Sometimes it seems strange that teams that are not exactly even matchups play each other. My favorite team is Missouri and I want to see them play an SEC school that doesn't make BCS (since Missouri likely won't make a BCS Bowl). LSU, Florida, Georgia, Auburn: at least 2 or 3 of these will not make a BCS bowl and would be a good matchup for Missouri.
Answer:-The only bowl game that is a safe be is the EagleBank with Navy...
In a Nutshell:
Conferences have contracts with bowls for its members. Most conferences meet their quota, but from time to time there isn't enough bowl-eligible (500 or better) teams. In such instances, they'll get a replacement team from another conference.
Team selection is not based of fair match-up or finish in conference, but rather on which school's fan-base travels better. Bowls want schools with loyal fans who will make the bowl game a full week vacation... this means tourist $$$$ for the local chamber of commerce.
Missouri can still make a BCS game if they can win the Big 12 champ by winning the North division and the championship game. Non BCS bowls that have Big 12 vs SEC teams are the Cotton and the Independence.
it appears as though the SEC might fall short on having enough teams for their 10 bowl commitments (assuming they get 2 BCS bowls)
- Question:-Does anyone know any good websites with college football bowl projections that are current?

- Question:-This Year's NCAA Bowl Projections don't make sense, can someone make sense of them for me?
Mostly I am concerned about the SEC and it's bowl projections. Here's the thing, if Tennessee gets to the SEC title game and loses, doesn't that make them 2nd in the SEC, 1st being LSU? Why wouldn't that put them in the Sugar Bowl and not Georgia? Also, why would Florida be in a bowl higher than Tennessee if UT does in fact win the SEC? If someone could give me a rundown, that'd be great. Thanks
Answer:-Tennessee is 8-3,Georgia is 9-2 thats why Georgia is ranked higher.
and if Tennessee loses against LSU they will be 9-4(if they beat Kentucky this Saturday)
Tennessee will be 6-3 in the conference and Georgia will be 7-2 in the conference.thus making Georgia the second best team in the Conference.
Florida will have a better record than Tennessee,since Florida beat Tennessee.thats why Florida will get a higher bowl.
in all Tennessee needs to win the SEC championship to even be in a BCS bowl game.

- Question:-bowl projections: if Michigan loses to Ohio State how is it going to get into the BCS?
this is what the bowl projections imply. Georgia is 10th in the BCS and needs to win out to get into the BCS (this is what was said). Michigan is BCS 12th but can lose to ohio state to get to the BCS. i don't follow this logic.
the bowl projections put them in the rose bowl with OSU in the championship game. so that means OSU beats Michigan. would the Rose Bowl pick the highest ranked big 10 team no matter where it is in the BCS? the OSU would put UM near 16th or 17th in the BCS
i am just wondering if this is even possible
ok it's possible if Michigan doesn't fall below 14th in the BCS after losing to OSU.
if michigan falls below 14th if they lose to OSU they are not eligible for BCS. they are currently 12th. i don't see how they not fall at least 3 spots if that happens.
