The 2020 season is going to be a weird one, and that’s going to extend to bowl season as well.

There isn’t going to be a 6-win requirement, most likely, as there will be plenty of bowl spots to fill (especially if the Pac-12, MAC and Mountain West don’t restart on time).

Recently, CBS Sports expert Jerry Palm updated his bowl projections, including the Big Ten, as the league will restart in late October.

As you can see below, Palm expects 11 SEC squads to play this postseason:


  • Rose Bowl (CFP) vs. Clemson


  • Fiesta Bowl vs. Penn State


  • Peach Bowl vs. Cincinnati


  • Orange Bowl vs. Miami


  • Music City Bowl vs. Minnesota


  • Outback Bowl vs. Michigan

Mississippi State

  • Liberty Bowl vs. Oklahoma State

Ole Miss

  • Texas Bowl vs. TCU

South Carolina

  • Gator Bowl vs. Florida State


  • Las Vegas Bowl vs. BYU

Texas A&M

  • Citrus Bowl vs. Wisconsin
