It’s that time of year (after eight games) when the bowl projections are being speculated.

With each win and loss, new tallies are made. Currently, here are’s forecast based upon future favorites prevailing:

Final Four (Orange/Cotton Bowls): Alabama

Sugar Bowl (SEC 1): Ole Miss

Citrus Bowl (SEC 2): LSU

Peach Bowl (At Large): Florida

Outback Bowl (SEC 3-8): Georgia

Music City Bowl (SEC 3-8): Texas A&M

TaxSlayer Bowl (SEC 3-8): Mississippi State

Liberty Bowl (SEC 3-8): Tennessee

Texas Bowl (SEC 3-8): Arkansas

The remaining five teams of Auburn, Missouri, Vanderbilt, South Carolina and Kentucky are still doubtful as to receiving a bid based upon their final record.

Should we be correct in our forecast that the Rebels will be headed to the Sugar Bowl, that would mean the first invitation since 1970!
