Missouri is one win away from a BCS bowl.

College Football's Post-Week 14 Bowl Projections

Just one week remains for college football’s regular season, and the bowl picture is starting to come into focus.

Week 14 brought significant changes to the BCS, as Ohio State has now replaced Alabama as our projected opponent for Florida State for the national title. While the SEC is out of the national championship in this week’s projections, an Ohio State loss to Michigan State would create a spot for Auburn, Missouri or Alabama.

In addition to the BCS bowl matchups, there is some intrigue about which teams might get left out of the postseason.

The Pac-12 has nine bowl-eligible teams but only seven tie-ins. Could Oregon State or Washington State spend the bowl season at home?

San Jose State’s upset bid of Fresno State creates seven bowl-eligible teams in the Mountain West, but the conference has only six tie-ins. Will the Spartans, San Diego State or UNLV spend the bowl season at home? Or can the Mountain West find a way to get all seven teams in a bowl game?

One other conference to watch over the next week is the ACC. With 11 bowl-eligible teams, the ACC is searching for a home for a few extra spots. Syracuse’s win over Boston College added the Orange to the postseason mix, while Pittsburgh is also fighting for a spot at 6-6.

With bowl announcements expected throughout the week, Athlon Sports will update these projections with the latest information to provide the best outlook on where teams will spend the postseason.
