Where might the underdogs end up in December?

November is here, and that means bowl projections! A lot of national publications don’t do too well with G5 bowl projections, so we took it upon ourselves to create our own.

I used FPI to predict how teams would finish their seasons, and ended up with a lot of eligible teams, more than there were bowls. Because this is a chaotic sport, we probably won’t see all of them make it. But for now, we’ll roll with it.

Here are my projections for the American, Conference USA, and the Sun Belt (all times Eastern). Army has already accepted a berth in the Armed Forces Bowl, and is in bold below to reflect that.
