Underdog Dynasty Final Bowl Projections

We’re just four days away from finding out bowl destinations, so let’s take one last crack at predicting them

NCAA Football: Middle Tennessee at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

With the regular season over for most teams and just conference championship games left, that means we’re just days away from finding out the bowl match-ups.

A few notes before the final set of projections. The Sun Belt has modified its selection process to go with the new conference title game. The champion will go to the New Orleans Bowl, and the runner-up will head to the Cure Bowl. What’s most significant is that the Cure Bowl had been getting the fourth pick of the Belt, so this is a step up for that game.

Additionally, a couple of bowl destinations have been officially announced. FIU will face Toledo in the Bahamas Bowl, and Arkansas State will face a Mountain West team to be named later in the Arizona Bowl. There’s been additional reports about certain teams going to particular bowls, but no official announcements have come.

Remember, the projections are made from scratch each week, so it’s very possible your favorite team has either moved to a new bowl or gotten a new opponent.
