Via Athlon Sports:
College football's bowl season is inching closer, but it's never too early to take a look at what the matchups might look like. With 11 weeks of results in the books, it's beginning to get easier to make projections about which teams will be eligible for the postseason.
The post-Week 11 bowl projections are a mixture between how things would look if the season ended today, future schedules, and a dose of the results so far this year. Expect more changes over the next few weeks.

** UCF is appealing a postseason ban and for now, is eligible to compete in the 2012 postseason.
Bold indicates a team has accepted bowl bid.
