2011 Bowl Predictions: Rutgers Appears Orange Bowl Bound

There are no Big East teams in the AP Top 25 Poll this week, but that doesn't mean that doesn't mean there will be no local teams in big bowl games. Let's break down the 2011 college football bowl schedule and take a look at some BCS and bowl predictions in the New York region.

Rutgers, which is currently ranked No. 33 in the BCS Standings, has the inside track on the Big East title and an automatic berth into the Orange Bowl. This bowl projection has SB Nation's BCS guru Samuel Chi less than excited: "Orange Bowl: Clemson vs. Rutgers - Another ACC-Big East snoozer. Wake me when this is over." That game would be played in Miami on Jan. 4 at 8:30 p.m. ET and televised on ESPN.
