The college football regular season is over, and that means it’s BOWL PROJECTION SZN.

The UCF Knights will not play in the American Football Championship for the first time since 2016, so that sucks. However, the Knights do get an extra week off, and at 9-3, are definitely going to a bowl game for a shot at another 10-win season.

The question is: Where?

We aggregated as many major bowl projection columns as we could find and here’s what they think:

We’ll keep this table updated as new projections come in.

The most frequent projection is the Cure Bowl in Orlando, most likely against Georgia State.

Overall, a local bowl game is nice for UCF fans, although the opponent, the 7-5 Panthers who finished third in the Sun Belt’s East Division, is less than appealing.

What do you think? Where do you want UCF to go? Who do you want the Knights to play? Let us know below.
