ESPN has us not going to a bowl but has UCF going?

Recommended Posts


First of all, before you get the e-mails ready, please remember these are just projections and a lot can -- and will -- happen between now and the bowl season. That said, Ivan Maisel and Pat Forde took their best shot at predicting all 28 bowls. That's no simple task considering different conference tie-ins and the fact some conference(s) will undoubtably fall short of reaching their requirements.

So, enjoy the projections and know that everything you see here may change by the end of Saturday.

I would still leave CDOA for the Big East in a heart beat even if it meant missing on the wonderful New Orleans Bowl which will be played in Lafayette on the stadium of U.LaLa vs U.LaMo. ;D

I would choose the Big East over c-doa even if it lost it's bcs status.  Look at who we play vs who ucf plays?  Even with 5 wins in the Big East you're a better team than a 7 win c-doa team.
