2011 Bowl Projections: Houston Cougars Look To Be Liberty Bowl Bound

The Houston Cougars are likely heading to the Liberty Bowl if they win Conference USA, while the Texas A&M Aggies bowl future is not as clear.

The Houston Cougars are on the undefeated path, but a BCS bowl game seems unlikely at this point as they will have a tough time climbing the polls. However, if Houston does win Conference USA they will be headed to the AutoZone LIberty bowl where they will take on a SEC team.

The Texas A&M Aggies bowl prediction is far less clear as the Big 12 is jumbled with seven teams who have one, two or three conference losses on the year. Texas A&M has two loses and three of their last four opponents are ranked in the top  25, and as of now Texas A&M is not bowl eligible as they are sitting with five wins. The lone unranked team on their schedule is the Kansas Jayhawks, so it is safe to say Texas A&M will get to the needed six wins to go bowling.

Here are the bowl projections:

AutoZone Liberty Bowl, Dec. 31, 2011

Houston Cougars vs. Mississippi St. Bulldogs

Bridgepoint Educational Holiday Bowl

Texas A&M Aggies vs. Washington Huskies.
