The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are projected to earn a bid to the Belk Bowl, according to Jason Kirk of SB Nation. Kirk lists Rutgers finishing in third place in the Big East and facing off against North Carolina State (the fifth place team in the ACC) on Dec. 27.
In addition to SB Nation, Rutgers is also projected to earn a bid to the Belk Bowl, according to Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com. Palm has Rutgers finishing in the same place in the Big East as Kirk but projects that the team will be playing against Virginia Tech instead of N.C. State (Palm also has Virginia Tech in fifth place in the ACC). Coincidentally, ESPN also has Rutgers meeting with Virginia Tech in a bowl but has the two teams facing off at the Russel Athletic Bowl on Dec. 28.
