Miami Hurricanes Bowl Projections After Week 11

The Miami Hurricanes will play their final game of the regular season on Saturday when they host Duke. They will then wait eight days until December 4 to find out which bowl they will be heading to.

Miami enters Saturday’s game having turned their season around with three consecutive wins against Pittsburgh, Virginia and North Carolina State. This is the third game in a row against one of the ACC’s bottom feeders. The Cavaliers, Wolfpack, and Blue Devils are a combined 4-17 in the ACC.

The newest list has some interesting potential matchups as Miami readies for their last game of the 2016 regular season. The marquee matchups on this list would be Mark Richt facing Georgia in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte for the first time since being relieved at the end of last season and Miami’s first meeting with Florida since 2013.

The projections about where the Hurricanes will wind up in December and who they will play is literally all over the place. There are teams and locations on the list from North, South, East and West.

The most curious projection is a return to the Sun Bowl in El Paso. That would be the Hurricanes second straight trip there and third in seven years. The way things sit now, it appears that the Belk Bowl in Charlotte is the most likely destination.
