2011 Bowl Predictions: Current Projections Place Florida In Chick-fil-A Bowl, Florida State In Champs Sports Bowl

Despite their 23-19 win over in-state foe Miami, the Florida State Seminoles (7-3, 5-2) are still currently projected to play in the Champs Sports Bowl against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, just as they were one week ago. Florida State has won five straight games since struggling early in the season, but Clemson's win Saturday night means the Seminoles have no chance to win the Coastal Division of the ACC, meaning no ACC Championship Game and no possibility of a BCS Bowl berth.

The Florida Gators (5-5, 3-5 SEC) fell to the .500 mark on Saturday after a 17-12 loss to South Carolina. Florida is currently slotted to play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, but the Gators need to win at least one more game this season to even be bowl eligible.

Here are current bowl projections for Florida and Florida State:

Champs Sports Bowl, December 29, 2011

Notre Dame vs. Florida State

Chick-fil-A, December 31, 2011

Virginia Tech vs. Florida
