College Football 2012 - Week 13 Bowl Projections

Update:  SMU accepted a bid to the Hawaii Bowl, shuffling up the C-USA bids a little bit (scenario below is projecting a UCF win in C-USA Championship game)
Update:  I have been reading and researching to sort out the bowls based on some assumed results this weekend.  I am shuffling a few teams around based on this.  Keep in mind, there is a likely scenario that Kent State qualifies for the BCS, which will instantly throw all the at-large selections into a mess.
  • 5-6 Pittsburgh projected to be in with a win vs South Florida next week.  If Pitt loses, they would be replaced by Central Michigan, but the bowl mix would be different.
  • 6-6 Georgia Tech will not be eligible for a bowl if they lose the ACC Championship Game because there are enough bowl-eligible teams
  • The current projection leaves out only a bowl-eligible Central Michigan team
