It’s never too early to start speculating about bowl trips, but now that November has arrived the projections are a bit more grounded.
Both Mississippi State and Ole Miss turn up this week in ESPN.com’s bowl projections.
Both Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards like MSU in the Dec. 31 Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31 against Clemson. They’ve been rather consistent on that in recent weeks.
The new twist this week is finding Ole Miss projected to the Dec. 31 Liberty Bowl in Memphis. Schlabach sees the Rebels paying Tulsa, while Edwards goes with Central Florida as a possible opponent.
Dec. 31 will be a Monday. The Liberty Bowl kicks off at 2:30 p.m. and the Chick-fil-A at 6:30 p.m.
