Alex Trautwig

Taking a look at the most recent bowl projections from CBS Sports.

Following another busy week of college football action, many pundits around the nation have released their updated bowl projections. Jerry Palm of CBS Sports recently announced what he thinks will transpire in the coming weeks and where he sees each school winding up for postseason play.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights lost their first game of the season on Saturday, although they held strong in the bowl projections. Palm sees Rutgers taking on N.C. State for the Russell Athletic Bowl on Dec. 28 in Orlando. The Russell Athletic Bowl pits the No. 2 team in the Big East against the No. 3 team in the ACC.

CBS Sports believes Alabama and Oregon will meet for the national championship. Kansas State will take on Notre Dame for the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. The Florida Gators meet with the Louisville Cardinals for the Sugar Bowl. Florida State is projected to face Boise State at the Orange Bowl. Finally, Nebraska and Oregon State could meet for the Rose Bowl.
