Over-Analyzing Way-Too-Early Bowl Projections

Christian Petersen

ESPN college football analysts Brett McMurphy and Mark Schlabach released their traditional way-too-early bowl projections today, so we should look at them and take them seriously.

What better way to address our spring/summer lack-of-football misery than to look at some projections that will probably be obsolete by Week 2 of the season! Good ol' Brett and Mark over at ESPN have provided us some conversation starters. Thanks Brett and Mark.

Fortunately, we can draw from the projections that they assume TCU will get back to its winning ways, as they both think the Frogs will square off against Oregon State in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.

Meanwhile, their picks differ on where several Big 12 teams will land.
