2011 College Football Bowl Projections: SB Nation Edition

New, 3 comments

Over at SB Nation, college football stat nerd (he will take that as a compliment) Bill Connelly put together his bowl projections. Connelly is not just plugging in the current records and place teams, he uses Adj. Score and momentum for his bowl projections

For Mountain West teams, Connelly has Wyoming in the New Mexico Bowl, however he has them in a bowl game at 6-6 but Wyoming needs seven wins since they played FCS teams. Then TCU is in the Las Vegas Bowl, Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl, San Diego State in the Independence Bowl and Air Force in the Poinsettia Bowl.

Full bowl rankings after the jump.
