College football bowl projections 2012: Virginia Tech picked for Music City Bowl

Examining the most recent bowl game projections from CBS Sports.

The Virginia Tech Hokies were idle this weekend as they prepared for a crucial Thursday night meeting with the Miami Hurricanes. Despite a 4-4 record this season, Jerry Palm of CBS Sports still see the Hokies making a pretty good bowl game.

According to Palm, Virginia Tech will head to Nashville on Dec. 31 to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores in the Music City Bowl. The Music City bowl pits the sixth team in the ACC against the seventh team in the SEC.

As for a few of the more notable BCS games, CBS Sports sees the Alabama Crimson Tide meeting the Oregon Ducks for the national title. If this was the case, it would mark the second time in three years these two programs reached the championship game.

Palm believes it will be Notre Dame against Kansas State for the Fiesta Bowl and Florida against Louisville at the Sugar Bowl. Florida State would take on Boise State at the Fiesta Bowl. Finally, Nebraska would face upstart Oregon State in the Rose Bowl.
