Week 12 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

Conference USA has eight of their 14 teams bowl eligibility. Either Middle Tennessee or Old Dominion will become number nine when those two face off on Saturday. Louisiana Tech could make it ten if they can beat Texas-San Antonio at home this weekend. That is impressive. The SEC will end up with nine, so Conference USA could surpass them in that regard. It helps that there are a few really, really bad teams that everybody else beats, but conferences like the Sun Belt and MAC should take a closer look at the Conference USA scheduling practices if they want to attempt to boost their bowl totals in the future.
