Bearcats back to the BCS?
Bill Connelly has used his advanced statistics to come up with bowl projections at the mother ship. We give you the BCS highlights:
Sugar Bowl: LSU 11-1 vs. Oklahoma State 11-1
Orange Bowl: Clemson 11-2 vs. Cincinnati 11-1
BCS Title: Alabama 13-0 vs. Stanford 13-0
Now as for the Big East bowl projections (Notre Dame stole the Champs Sports bid, it happens):
The BCS bid went to Cincy as you see above.
Pinstripe Bowl: West Virginia 8-4 vs. Temple 8-4
Belk Bowl: South Florida 8-4 vs. North Carolina 8-4
Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl: Rutgers 6-6 vs. UCF 7-5
Compass Bowl: Connecticut 6-6 vs. Tennessee 6-6
Sitting at home: Louisville, Pittsburgh, Syracuse
Bill didn't give projections for the scores of the games besides the BCS National Championship (28-13 Bama). The good news for the future of the conference is that all of the schools reportedly invited to join the Big East (except for Navy) are projected to make a bowl game.
