Quest for Gasparilla: Give us your mid-tier, reasonable bowl locations

Nothing surprising as Syracuse continues to get credit for the work done so far.

Anyways, the Bad Boy Mower is sitting at 2⁄3 of the way full, needing two more wins to head off somewhere down south or to the west. Where do the experts think the GPS is set?

‘Canes Now Projected to Play Colorado in the Sun Bowl

Losing to Virginia is the most Golden-esque thing that’s happened so far under Mark Richt. However, playing in the Sun Bowl would top that. Miami is a long ways away from their preseason projections, as some predicted them to wind up in a NY6 bowl, or even in the College Football Playoff. Some were more realistic, but not many thought the ‘Canes would be 5-2, with a loss to unranked Virginia through 7 games. Miami had a harsh awakening on Saturday, as they avoided the loss to Florida State in the previous week, but still had a hangover for the next game. Regardless, our expectations...

Week 7 upsets improve Kentucky’s bowl predictions

A wild week seven boosts Kentucky into improved bowl projections. Sitting idle in Week 7 proved to be beneficial for the Kentucky Wildcats They used their bye week to regroup after a loss at Texas A&M, as well as watch multiple upsets that helped both their SEC East odds and their projections for end-of-season bowl games. The Wildcats watched the No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs, No. 6 West Virginia Mountaineers, No. 7 Washington Huskies, No. 8 Penn State Nittany Lions, No. 15 Wisconsin Badgers and No. 16 Miami Hurricanes all take big losses. Thus, the Wildcats now finds themselves projected for a...

Line for Arizona’s game at UCLA makes major flip

So, about the Arizona Wildcats being a small favorite this Saturday at the Rose Bowl ... Oddsmakers have made a significant change to the line for Arizona’s game at the UCLA Bruins, now listing the Wildcats as 7-point underdogs after posting an initial line of Arizona minus-1 on Sunday afternoon. Had the original line remained intact it would have been the first time Arizona (3-4, 2-2 Pac-12) had been favored in Pasadena since 2010, which was also the last time the Wildcats won at UCLA. They have lost three straight at the Rose Bowl by a combined score of 128-41, most recently losing...

Virginia vs. Duke: What the ‘Hoos need to focus on going into Week 7

If I were Bronco Mendenhall... Virginia took down Miami–one of the ACC’s top teams–this weekend at home. It brings Bronco Mendenhall within two wins of another bowl game berth and brings the Cavaliers to 2-1 in conference contests, but, to be blunt, it wasn’t the greatest football. From either squad. The Hurricanes, despite tallying 339 total yards, only scored one touchdown. It was a game of field goals and offensive struggles, more a battle of secondary’s than a well-rounded, fun-to-watch, good-old-fashioned football game. With only 231 total yards and a touchdown to match...

We're going bowling! We're going bowling!'" Herman said."And also thinking, 'Oohh, we got some work to do.'"Texas (6-1, 4-0 Big 12) still has work to do, but the goals are much bigger.

Arizona opens as small favorite at UCLA

That hasn’t happened in a while After how poorly the Arizona Wildcats played last time out against Utah, it wouldn’t have been surprising for them to never be favored in a game again this season. But it turns out they will, at least for now. And not by much. Per VegasInsider, Arizona (3-4, 2-2 Pac-12) opened as a 1-point favorite for its Oct. 20 game against the UCLA Bruins at the Rose Bowl. It is the first time the Wildcats have been favored at UCLA since 2010, which was also the last time they won in Pasadena. Arizona has been outscored 128-41 in its last three games at UCLA,...

Then Ehlinger left early in the first quarter Saturday against Baylor with blood on his hand. What was supposed to be a cameo for Buechele turned into a full relief effort in a 23-17 win not secured until the final play."You never want this to happen. You never expect it to happen," Buechele said. "Just talking with my family and my teammates, they've always said stay...
