Don’t light that victory cigar quite yet A.J. McCarron. While the Alabama Crimson Tide are currently atop every major college football poll, there’s still a lot of work to be done before the bowl matchups are announced and the Tide are once again defending their national championship.

In the meantime, ESPN college football analysts Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards updated their bowl projections, and here is how they project the matchups in the BCS bowls:

    Recently I was really, really low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this! – 7f41
