After LSU knocked off Furman with a dominating second half and a loss by the Missouri Tigers in double overtime to the South Carolina Gamecocks, the bowl projections for the Tigers took a favorable turn and now project to play in the AT&T Cotton Bowl.

ESPN’s Brad Edwards and Mark Schlabach both project the Bayou Bengals to face off against the Oklahoma Sooners in the game between SEC and Big 12 programs. Edwards and Schlabach projected LSU in the Capital One Bowl and Outback Bowl, respectively after their loss at Ole Miss.
Last year’s Cotton Bowl also included the Sooners who took it on the chin from their former Big 12 rivals in the Texas A&M Aggies when they allowed Johnny Manziel to set a Cotton Bowl record with 516 total yards of offense in the 41-13 win by the Aggies.
LSU is idle this week before traveling to Alabama to take on the two-time defending champion Crimson Tide where they will look to spoil their season and cause a massive shakeup in next week’s bowl projections.
