Where are all the Sun Belt teams going this post-season? What bowls are their destiny? Here are the College Football News preseason predictions and bowl projections looking at where the Sun Belt teams will go.
2016 Sun Belt Preseason Bowl Projections
The Sun Belt sends teams wherever it can. There’s no set pecking order and no set spot for the conference champion. The goal is to look for the best matchups and work on the geographical tie-ins.
The hope is for Conference USA or the Mountain West to be without a team available for the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl, otherwise there are just four slots available.
So with all that in mind, the 2016 preseason Sun Belt bowl projections are …

1. R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl vs. Mountain West
Louisiana-Lafayette vs. Louisiana Tech
2. GoDaddy Bowl vs. MAC

3. Raycom Media Camellia Bowl vs. MAC

4. AutoNation Cure Bowl vs. American
