Preview 2009 - Way Too Early Bowl Projections

This was posted today on College Football News: Scout.com: Preview 2009 - Early Bowl Projections 5/19

Currently, Florida Atlantic is not projected to be in any bowl games this season; however, the owls are listed as top-5 possible alternates for two bowl games this season:

GMAC Bowl
TBA  Mobile, Ala.  ESPN
Tie-Ins: Sun Belt vs. MAC/WAC
Way Too Early Projection: Arkansas State vs. Louisiana Tech
Top 5 Others Considered: 1) Troy, 2) Florida Atlantic, 3) Middle Tennessee, 4) Central Michigan, 5) Western Michigan

R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl

Dec. 20 / 8:15 p.m. ET New Orleans, La. ESPN
Tie-Ins: Sun Belt No. 1 vs. C-USA
Way Too Early Projection: Troy vs. Marshall
Top 5 Others Considered: 1) Middle Tennessee, 2) Arkansas State, 3) Florida Atlantic, 4) Memphis, 5) Rice

Obviously, this isn't good or exciting news for Owl fans, but I am bringing this to the board's attention simply because Ark. State is listed before FAU in both bowl games. I understand why Troy is also listed before us, but Ark. State, really? Why?!?!

Fortunately, these are their "Way too early projections" so not too worried. Just curious about the Ark. State Indians. and are they really a threat this season?

More importantly, is the GMAC bowl NOW affiliated with the SunBelt? I had heard that ACC #9 had gotten that spot from CUSA.

Im trying to find out now in regards to this if anyone has any info on the SunBelt board.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

ASU returns many key players, incl. senior QB Corey Leonard, senior RB Reggie Arnold + DE Alex Carrington who could be a first day Draft pick next year…
