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:

Rose Bowl: Wisconsin 11-2 vs. Oregon 11-2
Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma 11-1 vs. Boise State 12-0

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.
