Is LSU fated to play in the 2018 Peach Bowl?

Is LSU a sure thing for the 2018 Peach Bowl? Five out of the seven college postseason prognosticators SWRT surveyed have the Tigers headed to Atlanta following Week 11 of the college football season.

Among those projecting LSU in the 2018 Peach Bowl are CBS Sports' Jerry Palm, and Kyle Bonagura and Mitch Sherman of ESPN.

Central Florida, and West Virginia were each projected to be going to the 2018 Peach Bowl by three bowl gurus, though no one picked them to face each other.

Here are the seven analysts surveyed by SWRT.

2019 Peach Bowl - Dec. 29  @ Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Ga.

Jason Kirk, SB*Nation: Florida vs. Central Florida

Jerry Palm, CBS Sports: LSU vs. West Virginia

Kyle Bonagura, ESPN: LSU vs. Central Florida

Mitch Sherman, ESPN: LSU vs. West Virginia

Erick Smith, USA Today: LSU vs. Central Florida

Kerry Miller, Bleacher Report: Florida vs. West Virginia

Eric Single, Sports Illustrated: LSU vs. Oklahoma

Single gets the WTF Award for picking Oklahoma to play in the Peach Bowl. The majority of the other seven analysts have the Sooners heading to New Orleans for the 2019 Sugar Bowl.
