Projected College Bowls

35 teams at this point from the BCS conferences have qualified for Bowl games. It will automatically be 36 as 5-5 NC State plays 5-5 Maryland. The other teams that are looking to get into the bowl picture are:

Pac 10: Stanford (5-5) vs. Notre Dame, Arizona State (5-5) vs. Arizona

Big East: Pittsburgh (5-5) @ West Virginia, UConn (4-5) vs. South Florida, vs. Louisville

Big XII: Texas A&M (5-5) vs. Texas, Kansas (5-5) vs. Iowa State

ACC: North Carolina (5-5) @ Virginia Tech

The only team that will be favored in the game should be Arizona State. A lot of home games for these teams, but it would take some upsets for these teams to get in. For arguments sake though we will say that the favorite comes through in each of these games, leaving 37 Bowl teams from the Power Conferences. Now is when you will see a lot of Mid-Major schools getting tons of bids.

NEW ORLEANS BOWL
(UL-Monroe/UL-Lafayette winner) vs. Southern Miss
