Bowl Projections, Post Week 2: Is Oklahoma Destined For The Sugar Bowl?

Oklahoma vs. Clemson at 2015 Orange Bowl.
Are you an Oklahoma supporter wondering where your team is going to a bowl  game? If you listen to the pundits, you might want to pitch your hoped towards the Sugar Bowl. The Sooners are getting projected by many media gurus to represent the Big 12 in New Orleans to face the SEC's representative school.

Of course, not all media analysts agree with that, but they are the outliers of the projections SWRT looked at. Texas and TCU both are picked to head to New Orleans to represent the Big 12. Georgia gets the most projections to represent the SEC.

The popular pick is an Oklahoma-Georgia Sugar Bowl. The two schools have never played each other. The Sooners vs. Ole Miss also gets some votes, as does Texas vs. Georgia.
