CFN put up their bowl predictions and has BC staying home. Given the ACC's ties to other bowls and the still outrageous number of bowl games, I don't see how BC misses out. If a Power 5 team gets to .500, they are going bowling. Heck, even with five regular season wins and a good APR, BC would probaby go bowling.
Could BC be terrible this year and miss out? Sure. But I just don't see it. There remains enough winnable games on the schedule and enough talent on D that BC should get to the required number of wins. If not, Jarmond will have to make some tough decisions early in his tenure.
