Big East bowl projections

The bowl projections stay the same after Week 3. I still have Notre Dame going into the Champs Sports Bowl, taking a Big East spot. I had already projected in losses for Pitt and Syracuse, so there is no need for mass change. Remember, this is a projection for how I see the season ending, not where the teams would go bowling if the season ended today.

BCS, Orange Bowl: West Virginia vs. ACC. Still holding firm on the Mountaineers, who have a big test against LSU on Saturday.

Pinstripe Bowl: USF vs. Big 12. The Bulls remain a big-time challenger.

Belk Bowl: Pitt vs. ACC. The Panthers are in danger of dropping and fast.

BBVA Compass Bowl: Cincinnati vs. SEC. The Bearcats had a nice rebound win against Akron. This week against NC State will tell us more.

Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl: Syracuse vs. Conference USA. The Orange need to get their running game going again.
