Newsline: OSU bowl projection

THE START OF the 2014-15 season is still more than two months away. But it's not too early for bowl projections when it comes to Oregon State.

Tempe is a comfortable place to be in December.

Sporting News predicts the following matchup for the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl:

West Virginia vs. Oregon State.

The Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl beginning in 2014 is the No. 7 bowl of the seven Pac-12 bowl tie-ins.

Note: Reports came out today it is now formerly known as the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, with the company pulling its sponsorship and leaving the bowl in search of a sponsor)

The Pac-12 will generally seed teams by record but the door is open to move teams around if the Pac-12 sees a benefit to certain teams in a certain bowl and/or to avoid a repeat Pac-12 participant in a bowl.

The Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl was formerly the Insight Bowl and before that, the Copper Bowl from 1989 - 1996. For the last eight years, the bowl has been played in Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

The 2014 Pac-12 bowl line-up:
1. College Football Playoff/Rose
2. Alamo Bowl (vs Big-12)
3. Holiday Bowl (vs Big Ten)
4. Kraft Bowl (vs Big Ten)
5. Sun Bowl (vs ACC)
6. Las Vegas Bowl (vs. MWC)
7. (formerly the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl...) (vs. Big-12)
