College Football Bowl Projections – Week 11
It certainly appears as though the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns are heading to their second-consecutive bowl game, and 7th in the last 9 years; but which one?
Louisiana, currently sporting a 7-2 record, are bowl eligible, and in position to accomplish even more, including the first 10-win season in school history and a possible conference championship.
What we do know is that the Sun Belt Conference champion will represent the league in the New Orleans Bowl. After that, it's anybody's guess.
One major media outlet has penciled in the Cajuns to play down the road on I-10 in a bowl game.
247Sports projects Louisiana to play in the Mobile Alabama Bowl, which is scheduled for Monday, January 6, in Mobile, Alabama.
Brad Crawford projects that UL will face Miami (Ohio) in the game.
This is a new projection, as last week 247Sports had Louisiana in the Arizona Bowl.
Prior to last week, however, for eight previous weeks, Crawford projected the Cajuns to play in the Mobile Alabama Bowl.
Louisiana won their 7th game of the year last Thursday, capturing a 48-7 road win over Coastal Carolina, their 7th triumph over their last 8 games.
The Cajuns return to action fare on Saturday when they travel to Mobile, Alabama, to take on the South Alabama Jaguars.
UL went 7-7 last season, their first under head coach Billy Napier, including a spot in the inaugural Sun Belt Conference Championship Game, a 30-19 setback to Appalachian St., as well as a 41-24 loss to Tulane in the Cure Bowl.
This season, the Cajuns are doing even better, already bowl-eligible, with still three regular-season games remaining.
Also of note; the site projects LSU to square off with Oregon in the Peach Bowl, one of two bowl games in the College Football Playoff.
The projected 4-team College Football Playoff Field includes LSU, Clemson, LSU, Oregon, and Ohio St.
LSU is projected to face Ohio St. in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.
