This is getting hard. 

With the multitude of cancellations, schedule mashups, and uneven amount of games played, it’s almost impossible to accurately predict where each team will end up come bowl season.

We’ll try to give it our best shot, as we give our post-Week 13 bowl projections following a week full of unplanned games. Oh, and we lost a bowl game too.

The New Era Pinstripe Bowl will not be played due to local restrictions in New York.

Well, here we go.
