Summary: LSU’s bowl projections predictably took a hit after this past Saturday’s 27-19 loss at Florida, though Jerry Palm of still has the Tigers in the Peach Bowl taking on West Virginia and the strong arm of quarterback Will Grier. Of the 13 projections this week, five have LSU making a third straight trip to the Citrus Bowl. While that seems improbable, if the Tigers can at least make it to 9-3 and the rest of the SEC keeps cannibalizing itself, it could happen.
