  • Bowl Projections for '19-20

    Stewart Mandel and Chris Vannini at the Athletic have taken a stab at the Bowl layout for this year. Vannini has UCF in a NY6 game.

    Mandel Has UC vs. Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl at Jerry World and I absolutely want all of that.

    I think almost all of us would love to see that, even those of us who do NOT live in Texas

          A Uk or Army match up? Interesting as well. Several folks have Ucla in a bowl game.

            Week 6 of the season and Bowl predictions are far from an exact science. I don't like the most recent projections of UCF to Birmingham and UC to the Cure Bowl. I thought American bowl berths were awarded in order of finish/ranking with highest going to Birmingham, 2nd Gasparilla, 3rd Hawaii, 4th Military, 5th Cherry, 6th Cure Bowl, and 7th Frisco. Not sure where the new Fenway Bowl (Boston in December, really?) fits in. Uc is currently projected to the Cure Bowl and that doesn't sit well after we just beat UCF.
            Red and Black are more of an Attitude than merely a color combination.

            Intimidate! Dominate! Celebrate!

              I still am unhappy that the number one finisher is supposed to play in the Birmingham Bowl, like that is some major reward. The Liberty Bowl and Outback Bowl should be in this mix.

                I hope the AAC is able to negotiate a better bowl affiliation and TV deal. I don't see either happening in the near future. Consistently putting 2-4 team in the Top 25 is going to help, though getting at least one team into top ten consistently will also help. The AAC needs to own the G5 representation to the other bowls selected by the committee. A G5 school is unlikely to be in the playoff in current format. In order to get into playoff, a G5 school would have to be the only undefeated team having played a tougher out of conference schedule, and the Power 5 can only have 3 teams combined with 1 loss, If there are four P5 schools with one loss, I think all four get in ahead of an undefeated G5 team no matter the out of conference strength of schedule.

                  Jerry Palm with the Cure Bowl prediction this morning. Bearcats would face Arkansas St if that turns out to be true. Absolutely shocked he doesn't have us in Birmingham. (sarcasm)

                  Game is Dec 21 in Orlando which is better weather than usual

                    Mid season prediction from Mandel at the Athletic has us in Hawaii vs. Hawaii. Makes for a nice trip but I never want to deal with Hawaii’s terrible fans ever again.

                      I've been saying that for quite some time. I can't understand why FedEx (who sponsors the Liberty Bowl) can't put pressure on to make that our premiere bowl. Beale Street on New Years Eve ranked just behind New Orleans and the French Quarter on New Years Eve.
