Bowl projections 2012: USC could face Virginia Tech in Sun Bowl

Harry How

The Trojans had their eyes set on a BCS bowl at the beginning of the year. Now they could be looking at a late-December bowl game.

The USC Trojans were arguably the biggest disappointment of the 2012 season. The team that so many picked to win the National Championship during the preseason finished the year with a 7-5 record. The Trojans went 5-4 against the Pac-12, and their biggest win was probably on a road trip to Washington.

Bowl games are right around the corner, and now it's USC's turn to wait to find their postseason fate. Various projections have the Trojans playing in a couple of different games, although SB Nation's bowl game predictions have them heading to El Paso to play in the Sun Bowl on Dec. 31. USC would face the Virginia Tech Hokies, who finished fourth in a weak ACC.

As for the rest of the bowl games, SB Nation sees Notre Dame taking on Alabama for the BCS National Championship. Oregon would play Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl, Florida would face Louisville at the Sugar Bowl, Florida State would play Northern Illinois at the Orange Bowl, and Stanford would face Nebraska in the Rose Bowl.
