LSU bowl projections

Here are a sampling of LSU bowl projections from across the Web heading into the No. 10-ranked Tigers’ game at No. 1 Alabama.

Most continue to have LSU in the Cotton Bowl against a variety of Big 12 opponents, the most intriguing one being a matchup between the Tigers nd Oklahoma State, Les Miles’ old team.

One predictor, ESPN.com’s Alex Scarborough has the Tigers returning to the Chick-fil-A Bowl for the second straight year, though from here that seems unlikely.  A more intriguing matchup is SBNation’s Jason Kirk projecting LSU to meet Michigan in the Outback Bowl, a game with Miles’ alma mater who he steadfastly refuses to play in the regular season.
