No changes yet in my bowl projections from a week ago. Syracuse is 4-4 but has to play Louisville, Cincinnati and Missouri. Three of its final four games are on the road, so I am still holding off.
BCS, Orange, Jan. 1 -- Louisville vs. ACC. The Cardinals keep finding ways to win.
Russell Athletic, Dec. 28 -- Rutgers vs. ACC. All those who wondered why I never elevated Rutgers into the Orange Bowl? Kent State.
Belk, Dec. 27 -- Cincinnati vs. ACC. Cincinnati has dropped two straight but should not be worse than 9-3 this year. Rutgers is the only team left on the schedule with a winning record.
New Era Pinstripe, Dec. 29 -- Pitt vs. Big 12. If Pitt plays the way it played against Temple the rest of the way, the Panthers will be bowling.
BBVA Compass, Jan. 5, 2013 -- No team eligible.
Beef 'O' Brady's, Dec. 21 -- No team eligible.
