2018-2019 College Football Bowl Projections


National Championship: Clemson vs. Alabama

These teams have alternated wins in the College Football Playoff over the last three years, but Kelly Bryant won’t be able to figure out this Alabama defense.

Orange Bowl: Wisconsin vs. Alabama

Wisconsin finally breaks through to get to the College Football Playoff, but unfortunately they draw Alabama.

Cotton Bowl: Washington vs. Clemson

Either way Alabama will face a team that they destroyed in their previous meeting.

Peach Bowl: Virginia Tech vs. Michigan State

The winner of this game could find themselves in the College Football Playoff next year.

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State vs. Miami

Over the years the Fiesta Bowl has been a house of horrors for Miami, while Boise State has thrived there as far as knocking off teams from the power conferences.

Rose Bowl: USC vs. Penn State

Two years ago these two teams met in one of the greatest Rose Bowl’s of all-time.

Sugar Bowl: Georgia vs. Oklahoma

The meeting between these two in the Rose Bowl this past January was so good that we had to do it again.

Citrus Bowl: Auburn vs. Ohio State

This will mark the end of a tough season off-the-field for Ohio State, while Auburn is looking to collect their first bowl win over a school from a power conference since 2011.

Outback Bowl: South Carolina vs. Michigan

Another rematch from last season as there will be some paint swapping going on in Tampa.

Sun Bowl: Utah vs. Florida State

A win in El Paso should lead to a big season in 2019 for the victor.

Gator Bowl: Northwestern vs. Florida

A win here for Florida would help Dan Mullen speed up the process in regards to getting this turned around in Gainesville.

Holiday Bowl: Iowa vs. Oregon

The Holiday Bowl has always been high scoring, and a meeting between Iowa and Oregon should lead to more of that.

Liberty Bowl: Mississippi State vs. Iowa State

Iowa State will head to Memphis looking to become the first school since Air Force in 1991 to repeat as Liberty Bowl Champions.

Military Bowl: Virginia vs. Navy

If you’re interested in looking at some paint swapping, then this contest is right up your alley.

San Francisco Bowl: Purdue vs. Colorado

A win here would allow Purdue to repeat as champions of a bowl for just the second time in program history with the previous occurence coming the Alamo Bowl.

Belk Bowl: Missouri vs. NC State

Missouri will have their hands full with a partisan crowd as this will be a de facto home game for N.C. State.

Alamo Bowl: TCU vs. Stanford

In last year’s Alamo Bowl, Stanford came apart in the second half versus TCU, but have they learned their lesson for the rematch?

Arizona Bowl: Wyoming vs. BYU

The first team to reach 20 points will probably win this game.

Camping World Bowl: Kansas State vs. Notre Dame

The biggest question going in is how motivated will Notre Dame be to play in this game?

Music City Bowl: LSU vs. Louisville

A trip to Nashville could mark the end of Ed Orgeron’s run with LSU.

Texas Bowl: Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma State

A pair of former Big 12 Conference foes get to renew acquaintances in what should be a high scoring affair.

Pinstripe Bowl: Boston College vs. Minnesota

New York City will be cold in December, but that won’t stop Boston College and Minnesota from putting on a show at Yankee Stadium.

Independence Bowl: Georgia Tech vs. Kentucky

The triple-option of Georgia Tech against the stingy defense of Kentucky should result in an interesting meeting in Shreveport.

Cactus Bowl: Washington State vs. Texas

This game will simply come down to which team is motivated to be there.

Quick Lane Bowl: Wake Forest vs. Arizona

Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate will be ready to put on a show in Motown.

First Responder Bowl: Louisiana Tech vs. Texas Tech

With the way that both of these teams can throw the football, this might be one of the longest regulation games in bowl history.

Hawaii Bowl: Colorado State vs. Marshall

The scoreboard operator will earn his/her paycheck as both of these teams can light it up.

Dollar General Bowl: Appalachian State vs. Miami (Ohio)

A win here by Appalachian State would make them the fourth school in the history of this game to repeat as bowl champions.

Armed Forces Bowl: Army vs. West Virginia

West Virginia’s defense will have their hands full with the triple-option attack of Army.

Birmingham Bowl: Vanderbilt vs. Houston

This will be the best opportunity for Derek Mason to get his first bowl victory as the head football coach of Vanderbilt.

Idaho Potato Bowl: Air Force vs. Buffalo

Very quietly this will be one of the better contests of the bowl season.

Bahamas Bowl: Central Florida vs. UAB

This contest will fly under the radar and be one of the better matchups of bowl season.

Gasparilla Bowl: South Florida vs. Florida Atlantic

Bragging rights in the State of Florida will be on the line in Tampa.

Frisco Bowl: Western Michigan vs. SMU

SMU should be up for this contest as it is only 40 miles away from Dallas.

Boca Raton Bowl: Toledo vs. Temple

These two programs are familiar with one another as they squared off in the 2015 edition of this game.

New Orleans Bowl :Arkansas State vs. North Texas

The New Orleans Bowl is generally one of the more competitive bowl games each year and Arkansas State and North Texas won’t disappoint.

Camellia Bowl: Troy vs. Northern Illinois

Troy and Northern Illinois have plenty of expectations to live up to as the first four editions of this game were decided by five points or less.

Las Vegas Bowl: California vs. Fresno StateĀ 

In one of the most intriguing bowl matchups of the season, Jeff Tedford gets to lead his new team in Fresno State versus the school that fired him a few years ago.

Cure Bowl: Coastal Carolina vs. Memphis

Both teams would like a win in this contest in order to propel them to bigger and better things in 2019.

New Mexico Bowl: San Diego State vs. Southern MississippiĀ 

The first team to score 40 points will more than win this affair.
