Week 9 Football Bowl Projections Breakdown

Following their somewhat surprising win over Boston College, Connecticut is now 4-5 and poised to reach a bowl game for the first time since 2015. The Huskies should get to five wins when they play UMass on Friday night. After that they host Liberty and travel to Army. It’s the game against Army which will likely decide their bowl fate. Fellow independent BYU, meanwhile, lost their fourth game in a row and now will seriously struggle to reach six wins.
