Week 13 Football Bowl Projections Breakdown

The bowl eligibility of teams went late into the night with both California and Colorado State needing wins to clinch a bowl berth. The Golden Bears crushed UCLA to reach a bowl in style. Meanwhile, Colorado State lost at Hawaii in a thrilling upset. That means there are 79 bowl eligible teams for 82 spots. That is great news for James Madison and Jacksonville State, who were not eligible for postseason play but will now make it in due to the lack of bowl eligible teams. Minnesota is the top 5-7 team based on the APR and will be the last team in.
