Bowl projections have LSUs all over the map, but New Year's 6 is still in play



Before Tuesday's (27 November) college football playoff rankings, no one really knew what to do with LSU in terms of where he should play in the bowling season.

But LSU lost just three places after their 7-hour loss against Texas A & M on Saturday in 10th place.

Why is it important? This helps to strengthen LSU's chances of playing in a game of six New Year's games.

Regardless of what happens in the league match of the SEC, Alabama and Georgia will play either in the playoffs or at least one game of the New Year of the Six. And even if Alabama loses to Georgia, it is unlikely that the CFP committee will leave the Crimson Tide after the current season.

Currently, Alabama (No. 1) and Georgia (No. 4) are in the Top 4, which means that if the season ends today, both Crimson Tide and Bulldogs would be in the top four. playoffs – and in a revenge from the SEC. title game.

LSU remains in the top 10 in the postseason standings after a 7-OT loss to Texas A & M

If this happens, LSU still has an outside shot to make the Sugar Bowl. The Sugar Bowl goes to the highest ranked SEC team in the playoffs. Florida, which lost LSU earlier this season, is in first place ahead of LSU in ninth place.

If Florida stays ahead of LSU, the Fiesta Bowl and Peach Bowl are the rendezvous for the six New Year games.

Of course, things will probably change after the conference championships this weekend.

Here's how things look now:

LSU ranking: A Texas A & M loss including brutal ups and downs

But not everyone is convinced. It's also a popular choice for LSU to travel to Florida for the bowl season, rather than in Arizona or Atlanta.

Here are the two bowls other than those of the New Year where an LSU is projected:

Citrus Cup – Orlando, Florida. (Conference Links: Big Ten / ACC vs. SEC)

The Citrus Bowl is the best bowl game for a SEC team that fails to win the CFP or the six New Year bowls.

This is an interesting choice for several reasons. One of these reasons being that two Citrus Bowl representatives have been accredited for the LSU-Texas A & M game. The second reason is that LSU played in the Citrus Bowl last year, bowing to Notre Dame, 21-17. The third reason is that LSU played in the Citrus Bowl two years ago also, beating Louisville, 29-9.

Three consecutive years, only two teams in the modern history of Citrus Bowl played in the game: Toledo from 1969-1971 and Miami (OH) from 1973-1975.

LSU played five times in the Citrus Bowl with a 2-3 record. The Citrus Bowl is the second best bowl for a SEC team that does not play in the playoffs. The best bowl is the Sugar Bowl.

LSU fans will probably not be happy with it if it materializes.

Outback Bowl – Tampa, Fla. (Conference Links: Big Ten vs. SEC)

  • January 1st at 11am CT
  • TV: ESPN 2

The Outback Bowl is in the SEC's "Six-Pool", with the Music City Bowl, Gator Bowl, Belk Bowl, Liberty Bowl and Texas Bowl.

After setting up the BCS teams, the Outback Bowl was the third choice of Big Ten and SEC schools. After the rise of the CFP, SEC and Big Ten collaborated with New Year's players to prepare their teams.

Since the 2014 season, SEC teams participating in the Outback Bowl were 8-5 Auburn (2014), 9-4 Tennessee (2015), 9-4 Florida (2016, SEC Champion) and 9-4 South Carolina.

The popular choice here is LSU vs. Michigan State. The Tigers and Spartans have played only once: the 1995 Independence Bowl, where LSU rallied to win a 45-26 victory.
