2011 Bowl Projections: Looking Ahead To Potential Participants In Region's

One of the many rewards of having warm weather year round is the ability to host sporting events like the Super Bowl or college football bowl games. The state of Florida has enjoyed those games and the tourist money they bring in for many years now, and even more so lately with the increased number of bowl games scheduled. This year, the state of Florida will host six bowl games, including, of course, the Orange Bowl on December 4th. Let's take a look at all six games and who is projected to participate in each of them now that the 2011 college football season is entering its home stretch.
