Overall:
Generally, the Sun Belt is given 3 bowls.  The St. Pete bowl is never given to the Sun Belt in these projections, although it should be noted that Sports Illustrated and Sportsprojections.com give dubious teams (Fresno State and Nevada) as CUSA replacements.  Everyone knows the Sun Belt is locked in if a replacement is needed and I do think the Sun Belt will have 4 eligible teams this season.

Team by Team - Percent of Projections in which team goes to a bowl
Troy - 100% (8/8)
ULL - 100% (8/8)
FAU - 50% (4/8)
FIU - 25% (2/8)

How can people still predict we would go to the NO Bowl? That's such a long shot…

FIU is predicted to go bowling. That would be astounding for them. If they go to a bowl Cristobol will have completed one of the greatest year to year turnarounds in recent memory.

GO OWLS!!!

If Troy wins the conference they don't have a choice. They HAVE to go to NO Bowl

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

I understand that. I am just surprised that they have made such a turnaround that they are even in the discussion. The Shula Bowl could be a real battle this year with more than the trophy on the line. Both teams could end up needing that win to go bowling. It is going to be a good one.

GO OWLS!!!

Funny they were saying the same thing about Minnesota before they tumbled out of the Top 25

I guess it's still relevant there tho… they have played very well
