USA Today Sports’ Bowl Projections after week one

·2 min read

The SEC found success in week one of College Football by going 13-1, with the lone loss going to LSU after a last-second point after try was blocked, giving Florida State the 24-23 win in New Orleans last Sunday.

Even though the season still has plenty of weeks remaining, it is never too early to project a team’s success by examining bowl game scenarios.

USA Today Sports’  Erick Smith recently dropped his updated bowl game projection list, which included 12 SEC teams reaching the postseason.

While Smith has updated the postseason destinations for several SEC squads, Arkansas projected bowl destination remains the same. He still expects Arkansas to meet Penn State in the Citrus Bowl at Orlando’s Camping World Stadium on January 2.

Where does he have the rest of the SEC heading this postseason? Take a look below:
