A Look at LSU's Bowl Projections

After LSU's crushing loss at Florida, many LSU fans are wondering what this season will bring for their Tigers. LSU still controls its own destiny in the Western Division. If they win out, they will be in Atlanta for a likely rematch with Florida. If they lose a game or two along the way, they'll need lots of help to get back to the SEC Championship.

Some fans are still talking BCS Championship, but I think this is an unreachable goal this year. Sure, LSU lost two games last year and still won the title, but look at those two losses ... both were in triple OT. This year, LSU got blasted by Florida by 30 points. If teams like LSU, USC, Ohio State and Oklahoma all finish with one loss, I don't think LSU gets the nod this year, not with a 30 point loss on their schedule.

So where will LSU end up playing in the postseason? Here is a look at where a few sports sites project the Tigers to go Bowling:
