Bowl Notes:
*Denotes Replacement Team for Tie-In

- If Bowl-Eligible, BYU will play in the Hawaii or Royal Purple Bowl (unless Hawaii is bowl-eligible, it must play in the Hawaii Bowl and BYU will take the MWCs spot in the Royal Purple Bowl) and Army West Point will play in the Poinesttia Bowl.

- A team must have 6 qualifying wins and a minimum .500 winning percentage. The exception is made if you finish 6-7 and your loss is in a conference Championship Game. Fresno St used this last year.

- Every team plays 12 games except for Hawaii and its extra opponent, who play 13. Colorado and Louisiana-Monroe played the extra away game against Hawaii so both must finish 7-6 to be bowl-eligible. LSU and Toledo will play 11 games due to cancellations.

- Boston College, North Carolina, and Army West Point each play 2 FCS opponents and must have 7 wins to become bowl-eligible as you can only count 1 FCS opponent as a qualifying win.

- Notre Dame is considered an ACC team for all non-coalition bowls. After the Bowl Coalition and the Russell Athletic Bowl make their choices, the other bowl-eligible teams are divided into tiers by record and placed between by the ACC and Bowl Committees together. Notre Dame is placed in a lottery system for bowl tier they are eligible for.

- If there not enough bowl-eligible teams, there will be exemptions made to fill all the slots, starting with 6-6 teams that dont have enough qualifying wins (see above), followed by 5-7 teams by on APR rankings. Shocked

The Cotton Bowl Classic was, from 1996-2013, only able to invite a selection of former Southwest Conference (which formerly sent its champion to the game) members.

Nowadays, theoretically, any former SWC member from the conference's heyday can participate in the game. For Houston, Rice and SMU, they would need to win their conference and be the highest-ranked G5 champion. The road to the Cotton Bowl is easier for the former SWC schools in the Big 12 and SEC, in a non-playoff year they would need to just about finish in the top 15, and in a playoff year like this year, the top 4.

Just wanted to share this bit of interesting information. I personally think its too early to make bowl projections, but that's your prerogative.

Bowl Predictions are up. This is very preliminary based on what's happen this season and my predictions of what will happen in the future. I'll keep this updated weekly. I'd love to hear your thoughts, but remember it's still early. As always, bowl placements =/= records or conference finishes.

I have Florida International, Old Dominion, and Texas St predicted to be bowl-eligible, but not in a bowl. Every other team below is not projected to be bowl-eligible.

Where the G5 rep lands actually depends on where the G5 rep is located I think. Boise State got into the Fiesta Bowl last year because they were in the Mountain Time Zone.

Houston would likely land in the Peach Bowl because it is in the Central Time Zone. If any other Central Time or Eastern Time team is the G5 rep, they would, likewise, go to the Peach Bowl.

Trying to contain Fournette would be something else. But playing in a New Year's Bowl in our first year under Harbaugh.... wouldn't get much sweeter than that.

If Texas State achieves 7 wins hard to believe they get shafted again. Of course 2 things I need to say. Texas State is 1-3 now, and they way they are playing, you could say they are having a "bowl snub hangover". Look what being a non-playoff 10-6 team in 2007 did to the Cleveland Browns. They had one of the worst hangovers a team could have from that happening - 6 straight years of 11 or 12 losses. They had some progress last year, but it's too early to say if they have recovered from that disappointment.

The other thing I wanted to say was that the NCAA should reinstate its rule saying 7-win teams must be considered for any bowl spot before any 6-6 teams get in, for both conference tie-ins and at-large slots, even if it means a Sun Belt team for instance gets in over a power conference team. These smaller teams need the exposure and money that comes with a bowl appearance, the power 5 teams have plenty of that without going to a bowl. In the case of Conference USA teams, it would give them the rare opportunity to appear on the ESPN family of networks, an opportunity which only usually comes along if they advance to the conference championship game, or if a C-USA team visits a team in a conference whose TV rights are held by ESPN. Not counting ESPN3-exclusive games, C-USA teams have only appeared on the ESPN networks twice so far this season: Charlotte at Georgia State on ESPNU and Middle Tennessee at Alabama on SEC Network, but in those cases, they are not as widely available as ESPN/ESPN2.

So, my point is, equal opportunity is the way to go, rather than overwhelmingly favoring power conference schools which is an unhealthy way of thinking.

As far as the G5 slot in the New Year's Six goes, I think it will once again come down to either the MW or the American, as these are by far the best two G5 conferences. The MW won out last year, and Boise State ended up with its sixth "mid-major national championship" (finishing as the highest-ranked non-power school in the polls) since moving up to FBS (all since 2002), and fourth in the last six years. Boise State has the longest active winning season streak at 17 years, including being the only FBS school to finish over .500 every season of the BCS era (something not even a single power 5 team achieved).

Well, even though it's too early to make complete/general bowl projections, I'm hoping Ohio State and Notre Dame end up in the playoff, but if they don't face each other in the semis, I won't expect either to win. I'm of the "you win some, you lose some" mentality as far as OSU goes.

Updated 10/6.

- Changed the Playoffs/Bowl Coalition to match updated projections. Ole Miss is still in the playoffs over Alabama and others. Simply, Ole Miss has to lose again for Alabama to win the SEC West. Ole Miss has LSU and Texas A&M at home. It's only road games are Memphis, Auburn, and Mississippi St. Alabama can still be put in the playoffs, but I can't see Ole Miss losing again at this time.

- Added the finalized Arizona Bowl on 12/29 between CUSA and Mountain West teams. Adjusted CUSA and MWC teams to accommodate those changes.

- Moved some bowls around based on change in record projections and moved Michigan to the Holiday Bowl vs Stanford just because it would be a pretty cool game that probably won't occur.

- There are no other teams I have projected to be bowl eligible, so unless things changes, I would start dipping into the 5-7 team pool.

Updated 10/13

- Updated playoff rankings to the following
#1- Baylor (projected 12-0)
#2- Utah (projected 13-0)
#3- Alabama (projected 12-1)
#4- Clemson (projected 13-0)

- I have Ohio St, Michigan, and Michigan St splitting each other. If my projections hold, it would knock the B1G champion out of the playoffs. SEC teams will get the benefit of the doubt for 1-loss and the other Power 5 would have undefeated teams. I don't trust any of these teams to stay undefeated, but I don't have a projected loss at this time.

- Due to B1G tiebreaker rules, Ohio St should definitely be the highest placed B1G team in the first College Playoff Ranking and therefore represent the East division in the B1G championship game and then the Rose Bowl. The other NY6 teams will be TCU (Big 12), LSU (SEC), Stanford (Pac-12), Michigan (At-Large), Notre Dame (At-Large), and Texas A&M (At-Large).

- Houston replaced Boise St as Group of 5 representative. Boise St has the upper hand currently and should finish 12-1 easily. Houston, however will end up having the advantage of beating Power 5 teams Louisville and Vanderbilt, as well as beating conference opponents Memphis, Navy, and Temple (AAC Championship game). Due to bowl locations, I placed Houston in the Peach Bowl.

- Texas, Washington, Florida International have been added to bowls, Boston College and Hawaii have been removed from projections. Texas St is the only team I have Bowl Eligible that is not placed in a bowl. After Texas St, Boston College is projected at 6-6, but would not qualify for a bowl (see OP).

Updated 10/20

- Playoff rankings to the following
#1- Baylor (projected 12-0)
#2- Utah (projected 13-0)
#3- Alabama (projected 12-1)
#4- Clemson (projected 13-0)

- Memphis, Iowa, and Florida have replaced Houston, Michigan, and Texas A&M in New Year's Six bowl projections.

- Indiana and Georgia Tech have dropped out with Texas St and Boston College replacing them. Boston College is projected to go 6-6, which isn't enough to get them bowl-eligible (see op), but they would be first in line for a bowl exemption. Georgia Tech, at 5-7, would be next in line due to APR listing.

- Houston and Michigan St have replaced Memphis and Florida in New Year's Six bowl projections. Baylor, with the Seth Russell injury, is no longer projected for the playoff.

- Changed up a lot of bowl matchups to give some more interesting games with built-in storylines. Also, I will be adding notes over the next week to show why these games might be interesting if it isn't obvious, and why I picked these matchups.
