In this week’s bowl projections, not much has changed from last week. Six football experts have the same matchups as the week before.
The three changes this week was West Virginia replacing Oklahoma State in the ESPN Big 12 Blog, Pete Fiutak replacing Georgia Tech with Miami and Brett McMurphy replacing Georgia Tech with Florida State.
There were two teams that are new to the projections. The first is Miami. The Hurricanes were most recently in Orlando in 2013 when they faced off against Louisville. The second is Oklahoma who faced off against Clemson in 2014.
