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
- 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.
