What are the latest projections for the participants of the 2016 Outback Bowl? A sampling of college football analysts shows most of them seem to be convinced that Northwestern will represent the Big Ten in the Tampa-based New Year's Day Bowl. As for the SEC? There still seems to be a lot of different ideas there.

Bowl: 2016 Outback Bowl
Date: Jan 1, 2016
Where: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Fl.
Conference affiliations: Big Ten vs. SEC
