Big East bowl projections: Week 11

By Andrea Adelson

I am still sticking with my bowl projections from the past several weeks. Syracuse took a huge hit with its loss to Cincinnati. The Orange now need to win two of their final three (Louisville, at Missouri, at Temple) to become bowl eligible.

Though Pitt lost a heartbreaker to Notre Dame, the Panthers have a great shot at winning two of their final three (at UConn, Rutgers, at USF).

BCS, Orange, Jan. 1 -- Louisville vs. ACC. The Cardinals dominated Temple.

Russell Athletic, Dec. 28 -- Rutgers vs. ACC. The Scarlet Knights were off and play Army this week.

Belk, Dec. 27 -- Cincinnati vs. ACC. Cincinnati came from behind to beat Syracuse and needs one more win to become bowl eligible.

New Era Pinstripe, Dec. 29 -- Pitt vs. Big 12. I still like Pitt's chances of getting to six wins.

BBVA Compass, Jan. 5, 2013 -- No team eligible.

Beef 'O' Brady's, Dec. 21 -- No team eligible.
