We’re back again this week with a look at some of the major media outlet’s bowl projections for UAB.

Each week will we’ll share the tie-ins for Conference USA to keep everyone up to speed.

Conference USA Bowls

  • New Orleans
  • Armed Forces Bowl (Fort Worth, Texas vs. Army)
  • Boca Raton
  • St. Petersburg
  • Bahamas
  • New Mexico

Here’s the current model the NCAA is using when picking bowl teams:

All bowl-eligible teams with 6-6 records must be chosen for a bowl game before any teams with a 5-7 record can be considered, a rule the NCAA’s Division I Council implemented on Wednesday for the 2016-17 season.

If there are not enough teams at 6-6 or better to fill the spots they’ll start adding 5-7 teams based on their APR scores.

Barring some catastrophic occurrences we’ll be getting to 6 wins this season. Our focus at this point should be getting to 7 or more to leave no doubt.
