College football bowl projections after Week 9 – 247Sports

My glamorous dad says this plugin is elegant!!

Survive and advance.
That’s the mentality this time of year when unbeaten Top 10 teams are beginning to drop like flies approaching the season’s final month.
“We showed toughness today. It was not a pretty win by any means,” LSU quarterback Joe Burrow said after Saturday’s 23-20 win over Auburn. “SEC games aren’t going to be pretty. When you can come out on top of a top-10 team and feel like you could have played better, it’s always a good thing.”
Oklahoma wasn’t so lucky.
The Sooners’ 48-41 shootout loss at Kansas State poked a hole in the Big 12’s Playoff hopes, one that needs immediate repairing.
Projecting postseason matchups is more of an educated guess than anything else and is one of the more subjective content pieces we handle at 247Sports. They’re a reflection of where we think teams will finish in their respective conferences, then placed in matchups based on the bowl selection process with regards to 2019-20 specific tie-ins and league guidelines.
There are specific rules to follow in every league. As teams jockey for position ahead of the first College Football Playoff rankings next week, we’re taking a slightly more scientific approach to our projections using insight and what we’re hearing from sources close to several different bowl committees.
Here’s a look at our college football bowl projections for the 2019 season after Week 9: Mason Fine (Photo: Jeffrey Becker, USA TODAY Sports)Frisco Bowl: Temple vs. North Texas

The word: Kicking off bowl season in mid-December is a host of teams who may or may not be familiar too you, some on the fringe of bowl-eligibility at this point — including Manny Diaz and the Miami Hurricanes. Saturday’s win at Pitt was important for the program, considering the next two games come against Florida State and Louisville, respectively. If Miami loses those, the Hurricanes will be 4-6 overall needing victories over FIU and Duke down the stretch. Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State vs. Washington State
Camellia Bowl: Ohio vs. Troy
New Orleans Bowl: Appalachian St. vs. Marshall
Gasparilla Bowl: UCF vs. Southern Miss
Hawa’i Bowl: BYU vs. Hawai’i
Quick Lane Bowl: Louisville vs. Michigan State
Military Bowl: SMU vs. Virginia Tech
Independence Bowl: N.C. State vs. UAB
Pinstripe Bowl: Pitt vs. Indiana
The word: Several high-profile AAC teams who will fall short of the Group of 5’s New Year’s Six bid wind up here with SMU playing Virginia Tech in the Military
