College Football Bowl Projections 2013 – Final

2014_BCS_Championship_logoOne last BCS Championship is on tap, and this time we get a title game match up without controversy. Isn’t it just like the BCS to go out in such an unexpected way? Well, we know it’s undefeated Florida State against 12-1 Auburn, and the biggest story line will no doubt be the SEC trying to wrap up the BCS with eight straight titles. Florida State is still the unquestioned best team in the country, though, so we’ll have to wait and see how that turns out.

Until then, we have plenty of bowl eligible teams fighting for the best possible match ups and pay days, and a few of them will get none of that. So, for the final bowl projections…let’s have at it.
