What a difference a week can make in the world of college football as LSU dropped their road game at Ole Miss and dropped seven spots in the AP Top 25 and their bowl projections have taken a considerable hit.
Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards have updated their bowl projections for the week and differ on the destination for LSU after the Tigers dropped a 27-24 decision to the Rebels.
Edwards projects LSU and Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl and Schlabach also projects LSU and Nebraska to meet in a bowl game, but he sees the two teams meeting in the Outback Bowl.
Both are New Year’s Day bowl games played in Florida. The Outback Bowl is played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa and the Capital One Bowl is played in Orlando.
Last week both projected LSU to play in the Allstate Sugar Bowl as a BCS at-large team. Perhaps if they win out–which would include wins over Alabama and Texas A&M–the Tigers can find their way back into the BCS mix.
The first BCS standings are released later this evening.
