College football's bowl season is inching closer, but it's never too early to take a look at what the matchups might look like. With nine weeks of results in the books, it's beginning to get easier to make long-term projections about teams. 

The post-Week 9 bowl projections are a mixture between how things would look if the season ended today, a look at future schedules, and a dose of the results so far this year. Expect more changes over the next few weeks.
