No love for Utes in ESPN, CBS bowl game projections
First Published May 26 2014 01:59 pm • Last Updated May 26 2014 11:25 pm

Three months away from the beginning of the college football season, there’s little faith out there by national media outlets that the Utah Utes will end a two-year bowl drought.

ESPN’s Brett McMurphy and Mark Schlabach today released their bowl projections, with appearances by BYU and Utah State, but Utah was left out by both. McMurphy has the Aggies meeting the University of Arizona in the Las Vegas Bowl and BYU meeting Cincinnati in the Miami Beach Bowl. Schlabach projects Utah State to get a trip to paradise, facing Rice University in the Hawaii Bowl and has BYU taking on Tulane in the Miami Beach Bowl.

The Cougars, assuming the team is bowl eligible, are locked into the Miami Beach Bowl.

Similarly, CBS’ Jerry Palm dismissed the Utes earlier in May, projecting Utah State to go bowling against Rice in the New Mexico Bowl and BYU taking on UCF in the Miami Beach Bowl.

What do you think about these projections? Vote in the poll above to tell us if you think Utah will make a bowl game.
