The time has come for Selection Sunday, where we find out where each team will play during bowl season. Last week the LSU Tigers were sitting at 5-6 but a last-minute drive gave them the victory over Texas A&M making them bowl eligible.
Erick Smith of USA TODAY Sports put together his final bowl projections. Where are the Bayou Bengals likely headed?
AutoZone Liberty Bowl vs Big 12 opponent
LSU vs West Virginia
LSU and West Virginia haven’t met on the football field since their home-and-home series in 2010-2011. The Tigers won both matchups. The Mountaineers finished the season with an identical 6-6 record. Both teams are looking to finish out the year on a high note.
Texas Bowl vs Big 12 Opponent

LSU vs Kansas State
It appears that 247Sports sees it completely differently but still playing the same conference. A trip to Houston in the Texas Bowl to play Kansas State. These two schools haven’t met since 1980 but perhaps that could change in the near future.
