HSN's Bowl Projections

We discussed Iowa's bowl outlook yesterday and concluded the Outback Bowl as the most likely destination for the Hawkeyes. Today we decided to show you how we came to that conclusion and provide a breakdown of every BCS bowl game and the six other bowls that have Big Ten tie-ins. For simplicity sake, we are assuming that Alabama defeats Florida (we may be the only ones) in the SEC Championship, and Oklahoma and Boston College win their conference title games as well. With the ever changing BCS landscape, predicting BCS bowl selections and how they affect non-BCS teams is a difficult task, but keep in mind that no conference can send more than two teams to BCS bowls. Assuming the Big XII, SEC, and Big Ten all send two teams to BCS games, here is how we see the other spots getting filled.

BCS National Championship
#1 Alabama vs. #2 Oklahoma

Rose Bowl
Penn State vs. USC

Orange Bowl
Boston College vs. Cincinnati

Sugar Bowl
Florida vs. Utah

Fiesta Bowl
Ohio State vs. Texas

Capital One Bowl
Michigan State vs. Georgia

Outback Bowl
IOWA vs. South Carolina

Alamo Bowl
Northwestern vs. Missouri

Champs Sports Bowl
Wisconsin vs. Georgia Tech

Insight Bowl
Minnesota vs. Kansas

Motor City Bowl
No Bowl Eligible Big Ten Teams Remaining (Thanks Illinois!)
