2012 bowl projections: Virginia Tech picked for Music City Bowl

Examining the latest round of bowl projections from CBS Sports.


The college football season is winding down and many teams are starting to think about where they may be headed for their bowl game. The Virginia Tech Hokies currently have just five wins, although a win over rival Virginia on Saturday afternoon would make them eligible for postseason play.

Jerry Palm of CBS Sports released his latest round of bowl game projections this week. According to him, the Hokies will face the Vanderbilt Commodores in the Music City Bowl. The game typically pits the ACC's sixth-best team against the seventh-best program in the SEC, and it would be played in Nashville on Dec. 31.

As for Palm's predictions for the BCS games, he sees Notre Dame taking on Alabama for the national title. Kansas State would meet Stanford for the Fiesta Bowl, and LSU would welcome in Oklahoma to the Sugar Bowl. The Orange Bowl would pit ACC champion Florida State against Big East champion Louisville. Oregon and Nebraska would play for the Rose Bowl in Southern California.
