Bowl projections: Week 12

Now that we're in the second week of November, we've finally reached the home stretch of the regular season. It's one of the more difficult things to do, but the postseason has a visible shape and I've begun to compile a rough draft for bowl projections.

Remember—these predictions are completely biased and are meant to entertain the idea of which team will fall where. Everything is subject to change on a weekly basis. And will.

*Replacement team for a conference that does not have enough bowl-eligible teams.
