Week 13 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

Week 13 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

The moral of the story is there are way too many bowl games. At the moment, 75 teams are bowl eligible. Three others, South Alabama, Georgia State and Kansas State are a win away. All three of those teams will likely be underdogs in their final game too. South Alabama probably has the best chance to win at home against Appalachian State. Georgia State travels to Georgia Southern and K-State hosts West Virginia. What that leaves is probably at least four 5-7 teams heading to a bowl. Based on the latest available APR rankings, the top four 5-7 teams that we now have joining South Alabama in the bowls are Nebraska, Kansas State (assuming they lose anyway), Minnesota and San Jose State. Illinois and Rice are next in line and Missouri would be in that mix as well, but they already said they would not accept a bowl bid.
