A key exercise during any college football season is gathering information concerning the upcoming contests and using the data to predict the winners.
In addition to providing a winner and loser, the weekly prognostications of knowledgeable fans serve as a launching point for determining important events further down the road.
What happened last weekend, and what will happen this week, has a direct bearing on the bowl selection process. This leads to forecasting the teams who will be invited to specific postseason games.
By launching this weekly series of bowl projections based upon play through the current week, Bleacher Report will stake a claim in the fertile ground of the college football fan's imagination.
Bowl projections will be based upon a variety of factors, including input from the readers. Base your comments upon the actual weekly polls and your own private ranking systems, as well as playing a hunch.
Each week will be treated separately, so we should factor our own projections as if the season has concluded with all the specific bowl tie-ins arranged.
This will be a group effort to make known how Bleacher Report views the upcoming bowl matchups.
