North Coast Bias: MAC Bowl Projections (11.11.12)

Bowl Season could have the NIU Huskies vs Purdue Boilermakers in Dallas. - Jonathan Daniel

Projecting the 2012/13 MAC Bowl Matchups.

The MAC currently has SIX bowl eligible teams with two teams not yet ineligible. The latest North Coast Bias projections have a total of 70 bowl eligible teams for the 70 available spots, with the MAC ending up with seven bowl eligible teams.

The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl still projects to have an opponent from the Sun Belt Conference, with the other primary bowls featuring opponents as contracted.

Since the last NCB Bowl Projections, the NIU Postseason Central Site has added the Independence Bowl to the list of secondary agreements. Of the five disclosed secondary agreements, the New Mexico Bowl joins the Independence Bowl as bowls projected to not host a MAC team. The other three secondary bowls are projected to have MAC teams.

In addition, NCB is projecting the New Orleans Bowl to host a MAC team as at-large selection.

The three Primary Bowls are listed first, followed by the five Secondary Bowls, and thirdly by the projected At-Large Bowl.
