Week 6 Russell Athletic Bowl Projections

Through six weeks of college football the media has predicted two different ACC teams plus Notre Dame and on the Big 12 side three different teams as well.

Here are your week five projections for the 26th Russell Athletic Bowl.

Jerry Palm (CBSSports.com):  Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma State

Jason Kirk (SBNation):  North Carolina vs. Oklahoma State

Jake Trotter (ESPN Big 12 Blog): Oklahoma

David Hale (ESPN ACC Blog): Florida State

Mark Schlabach (ESPN):  Florida State vs. Oklahoma State

Brett McMurphy (ESPN):  Notre Dame vs. West Virginia

Brant Parsons (Orlando Sentinel): Florida State vs. Oklahoma State

Bill Bender (Sporting News):  Florida State vs. Oklahoma State

Bryan Fischer (Bleacher Report): Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma

Almost identical to last week’s projections, no new teams entered the projections and very few matchups changed. Mark Schlabach, Brett McMurphy, David Hale and College Sports Madness all had the same projections as last week.

Oklahoma State, who has never made a Russell Athletic Bowl appearance before, replaced West Virginia in two projections. However McMurphy still has the Mountaineers coming to Orlando to face Notre Dame.

Also moving back into the projections is 2014 Russell Athletic Bowl alum Oklahoma. Jake Trotter of ESPN has the Sooners returning to Orlando.
