College Football Bowl Projections: 3 Likely Destinations for Miami
College football bowl projections are here, and we're here to talk about a Hurricane.
The Miami Hurricanes to be specific.
Although Miami won't be heading to as big of a game as most people expected, the Canes will still be bowling nonetheless.
Let's take a look at possible bowl scenarios for the now Randy Shannon-less Hurricanes.
The Bowl: ACC No. 4 vs. Pac-10 No. 4
The Matchup: Miami vs. Temple (or Toledo)
Why Miami is Here: The Hurricanes are actually the No. 5 team in the ACC, but either Virginia Tech or Florida State will be headed to the Orange Bowl.
That means that Miami will be considered the No. 4 ACC team come bowl selection time. They should end up at the Sun Bowl.
Prediction: Miami 28, Temple 21
Music City Bowl
The Bowl: ACC No. 6 vs. SEC No. 7
The Matchup: Miami vs. Mississippi State
Why Miami is Here: This will depend on what bowls want what ACC teams, but the Music City Bowl generally takes well-known schools.
It's featured teams like Clemson, Kentucky, Florida State and Boston College in recent years.
Prediction: Mississippi State 34, Miami 24
Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl
The Bowl: WAC vs. Pac-10 (No.5 or 6)
The Matchup: Boise State vs. Miami
Why Miami is Here: What a ways to fall for the Broncos, huh? Boise State should be in this game as it usually showcases a top team from the WAC.
The Hurricanes are here because no team from the Pac-10 will make it to the game, and the replacement will likely come from the ACC.
Prediction: Boise State 42, Miami 20
