College Football Bowl Projections, Week 10: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Vs. Rutgers, Cal, Or Mississippi St.?

Currently ranked fifth in the ACC, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets can likely earn a trip to the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 31 in Charlotte by beating the Duke Blue Devils and Miami Hurricanes. Or maybe a better bowl, if ACC teams ahead of the Jackets stumble, which never happens in the ACC.

Tech's bowl streak, 13 years long and fourth-best in the country, is in jeopardy, but Tech only needs a win over Duke to at least earn bowl eligibility. Falling below eighth in the ACC would moot all that, but as long as we have Duke, Virginia, Wake Forest, and Boston College around, there really isn't any chance of that happening.

The Muffler Bowl will also welcome the Big East's third-place finisher. The Rutgers Scarlet Knights currently hold down the three spot with a 1-1 conference record, since apparently the Big East really drags its feet at getting that conference schedule going. Not that we blame them.

ESPN is split on whether Tech will face the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Muff, or move ahead to meet the California Golden Bears in the Sun Bowl (loser loses their pre-fight-song song!), while CBS has Tech taking on the Mississippi St. Bulldogs in the Music City.


College Football Bowl Projections, Week 10: Georgia Bulldogs Vs. UCF, Miami, Or Penn State?

The Georgia Bulldogs need a win over either the No. 2 Auburn Tigers on the road or Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at home to extend their 13-season bowl streak, which is tied for fourth-best in the nation. This is assuming they get past Idaho State next week. Yes, we're wholeheartedly assuming. 

The Dawgs are currently ranked eighth in the SEC, which puts them in line for the Liberty Bowl on Dec. 31 in Memphis. The bowl's other tie-in is the Conference USA champion. The Central Florida Knights currently lead C-USA, though the conference does involve a championship game, so goodness knows what madness may remain in store for America's most American conference.

UCF coach George O'Leary went 3-4 against Georgia in his seven full seasons as Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head coach.

ESPN's projections both have Georgia rising to seventh in the SEC and playing the Miami Hurricanes in the Music City Bowl, while CBS thinks the Dawgs can take sixth in the SEC and meet the Penn State Nittany Lions in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 1.
