Examining the most recent bowl game projections.

Many college football experts are releasing their predictions for each bowl game this year. While there are no teams from the Boston area likely to make a bowl in 2012, there are still plenty of other intriguing games on the slate.

Jerry Palm of CBS Sports has made his predictions and he likes the Alabama Crimson Tide to take on the USC Trojans for the national championship in Miami.

As for the other BCS games, Palm believes Kansas State will take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish for the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale. In the Sugar Bowl, the Georgia Bulldogs will take on the Louisville Cardinals, who he believes will win the Big East title.

Florida State will take on the Boise St. Broncos in the Orange Bowl, as the Broncos keep trying to prove the little guys can hang with the big BCS conference teams. Finally, CBS Sports thinks the Oregon Ducks and their high-flying offense will take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers at the Rose Bowl.
