Brad’s 27th Annual College Football Bowl Projections

It is time to find out where your favorite team may be playing this holiday season! For the 27th consecutive season, I have created a projection of what the bowl games will look like when the full lineup is released next Sunday.  Overall, there are 83 bowl eligible teams this season vying for 82 bowl spots, so I am calling for Eastern Michigan to be the one bowl eligible squad not to get a bid this season. Three teams have already accepted bowl bids and those schools are marked in bold. Please feel free to comment or debate.
