CBS Sports reveals preseason bowl projections for the SEC




 

We are inching closer to the start of the college football season and the beginning of the Brian Kelly era. The LSU Tigers are hoping for better results than we saw in the 2021 campaign.

Much like last season, LSU will begin the campaign away from Tiger Stadium but at least they remain in Louisiana. A power five showdown awaits in New Orleans with the Florida State Seminoles. The same exact team that Kelly faced off with to start the 2021 season as the head coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

With hopes of a better season, we can continue looking at the preseason bowl projections. The latest doesn't think too highly of the Bayou Bengals as they are slated to play extremely early in bowl season.

CBS Sports released their latest bowl projections with 11 of 14 SEC teams making the cut. Only the Auburn Tigers, Missouri Tigers, and Vanderbilt Commodores were left off the list.
