2011 Bowl Projections: Rutgers Headed To New Era Pinstripe Bowl

According to the latest bowl projections, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights are on track to meet Missouri in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights shored up their fifth trip to the postseason in six years by beating South Florida on Saturday, 20-17. The only question that remains now is where Rutgers will be headed this bowl season.

According to the bowl projections Scout.com posted earlier today, the Scarlet Knights (6-3, 3-2 BIG EAST) can expect to stay close to home with a trip to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. There, they are expected to meet Big 12 representative Missouri.

Unfortunately for Syracuse and Connecticut, Rutgers is the only NYC-metro team listed in the bowl projections, despite UConn (4-5, 2-2 BIG EAST) picking up its fourth victory of the season Saturday over the Orange (5-4, 1-3 BIG EAST).

On the national level, LSU staked its claim to a projected spot in the BCS National Championship game with its 9-6 overtime victory over Alabama. Scout.com likes the Tigers to meet Oklahoma in the title game after the Sooners thrashed Texas A&M over the weekend. 

The rest of the BCS games are projected as follows:

Rose Bowl: Wisconsin vs. Oregon 

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma State vs. Stanford 

Allstate Sugar Bowl: Alabama vs. Boise State

Discover Orange Bowl : Clemson vs. Cincinnati
