The pleasant chill in the autumn air is refreshing. The leaves have fallen. Daylight grows shorter each passing day. Football weather is in full effect, yet the season is nearly over. For many teams and fan bases, their aspiration to be playing football in January has been deflated. For the select few who still bear the privilege of wearing that lucky jersey into the new year, it is a wonderful feeling of pride and contentment.

With less than two weeks remaining in the NCAA regular season, there is a more clear picture of who the privileged few will be. While nothing is set in stone as of yet, let’s take a walk down a dreamer’s lane and create a picture of Bowl Season!

It is looking as if the SEC and Big 12 may not be able to fill the allotment of Bowl spots they are offered. With so many below .500 teams in both conferences and the teams eligible in contention for New Year’s six or playoff games, it leaves open spots for Group of 5 teams or other At Large bids. Again, these are projections. They are based upon wins and bowl placement availability. We will update this again after the end of Rivalry Week. Stay tuned to AmbushSportsNetwork.com
