2011 Bowl Projections: SB Nation Projects Ohio State In TicketCity Bowl

According to SB Nation's bowl projections this week the blog-writers are still not impressed with the Buckeyes even after their dramatic win over Wisconsin on Saturday. SB Nation's Bowl projections have Ohio State headed to Texas to play in the TicketCity bowl on January 2nd. The TicketCity Bowl is slated to get the Big Ten's 7th choice of its eight bowl tie-ins:

Jan. 2  TicketCity Bowl Ohio State (7-5) SMU (8-4)

The projection has OSU facing the SMU Mustangs, which is a slightly ironic choice considering the nature of Ohio State's last offseason. SMU is the only program to ever be handed the NCAA's death penalty in football for multiple violations.

The projection also has Ohio State finishing 7-5, thus earning a split in their final four games of the season against Indiana, Purdue, Penn State, and Michigan. Three of those four teams are currently projected as bowl teams,with only this week's opponent in Indiana sitting out. The Hoosiers are already 1-8 on the year.
