Bowl Predictions for 2012-13

* 61 teams are eligible going into Friday's games
* Based on point spreads of this week's games and using a guideline of a 3.5 point home favorite or better or a 1 point road underdog or better, I'm considering the following teams bowl eligible: Virginia Tech, Michigan St., Purdue, Central Michigan, West Virginia, Rice & Baylor.
* I'm considering Georgia Tech to be eligible, regardless of losing the GT game.  At 6-7, they would be at least conditionally eligible.
* I have Wake Forest as a 5-7 bowl eligible team as the best APR of 5 win teams, just ahead of Missouri.
