Yet again, no change in the Foster Farms Bowl opponent for Campus Insiders. The Bruins lost to Arizona State, falling to 3-3.

However, ESPN’s Bennett has changed his prediction to the Music City Bowl. The SEC opponent was not available as of press time, as the ESPN SEC blog was the only one not to release updated bowl projections.

Kirk also makes a bowl and opponent change, this time to the Citrus Bowl (a bowl that has not been seen since the beginning of the season) and Ole Miss. The Runnin’ Eli Manning’s are 3-2, following a 48-28 win over Memphis.

Meanwhile, Jerry Palm stays with his Holiday Bowl projection against Utah yet again.

Record in Music City Bowl: Never played in

Record in Foster Farms Bowl (Formerly the San Francisco Bowl, the Emerald Bowl, the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, and the Fight Hunger Bowl): Never played in

Record in Holiday Bowl: 1-0 (50-39 over BYU and eventual Heisman winner Ty Detmer, who passed for 576 yards)

Record in Citrus Bowl: 2-3 (Losses to Clemson, Auburn, and Florida-the Curtis Enis suit game, and wins over Tennessee and LSU).
