2012-13 Bowl Projections

As we enter the second weekend of November, there’s no better time to take a look at some possible postseason matchups for the 2012-13 bowl season.

I will revisit these projections throughout the rest of the season as I try to determine where your team may or may not be headed for the holidays. But for now, let’s have some fun and look at some potential matchups in December and January.

Projections subject to change

Key

* Replacement team for a conference that does not have enough bowl-eligible teams.

Notes

The champions of specific conferences are contractually committed to certain bowls — unless they are No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings…

ACC = Orange; Big Ten = Rose; Big 12 = Fiesta; Pac-12 = Rose; SEC = Sugar

If a bowl loses a host team to the title game, then the bowl gets first choice at a replacement team. The rest of the selection order for 2012-13 is: Fiesta, Sugar and Orange.

If BYU is bowl-eligible, it will play in the Poinsettia Bowl.
If Army is bowl-eligible it will play in the Military Bowl.
If Navy is bowl-eligible, it will play in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.
