TU Bowl Outlook




Conference USA has sorted out its plan for upcoming bowl games, and Tulsa has two possibilities which are based on the result of the league championship game.

C-USA will have five teams playing in bowl games this season and the league has announced its lineup of games, pending the outcome of this Saturday's C-USA Football Championship Game. UCF will visit Tulsa in the championship and based on the result of that game, C-USA's bowl lineup will fall into place.

East Carolina, Rice and SMU are the conference's other bowl-eligible teams.

• Here is how it shakes out if Tulsa wins the championship game:

Liberty Bowl, Dec. 31, Memphis, Tenn. -- Tulsa
Armed Forces Bowl, Dec. 29, Fort Worth, Texas -- Rice
Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, Dec. 24, Honolulu, Hawaii -- SMU
New Orleans Bowl, Dec. 22, New Orleans, La. -- ECU
Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl, Dec. 21, St. Petersburg, Fla. -- UCF

• If Tulsa loses the championship game, this will be C-USA's bowl lineup:

Liberty Bowl, Dec. 31, Memphis, Tenn. -- UCF
Armed Forces Bowl, Dec. 29, Fort Worth, Texas -- Tulsa
Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, Dec. 24, Honolulu, Hawaii -- SMU
New Orleans Bowl, Dec. 22, New Orleans, La. -- Rice
Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl, Dec. 21, St. Petersburg, Fla. -- East Carolina

The Golden Hurricane will be in a bowl game for the fourth straight season, while UCF will be bowling for the third time in four years. After a one-year absence, East Carolina will play postseason football for the sixth time in seven seasons. SMU will be making a bowl trip a fourth consecutive year for the first time in school history, and Rice is back in postseason play for the first time since 2008.

Opponents for two of C-USA's bowl games have already been confirmed. Air Force is slated for the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl and Louisiana-Lafayette will compete in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.

Opponents for the other games will be announced no later than Sunday, December 2.
