As we prepare for Championship Saturday and the final weekend of the college football regular season, let’s take a look at some possible postseason matchups for the 2012-13 bowl season.

I will revisit these projections after all of Saturday's games as I try to determine where your team may or may not be headed for the holidays. And on Sunday night, all of the matchups for December and January will be revealed.

Projections subject to change


* Replacement team for a conference that does not have enough bowl-eligible teams.


The champions of specific conferences are contractually committed to certain bowls — unless they are No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings…

ACC = Orange; Big Ten = Rose; Big 12 = Fiesta; Pac-12 = Rose; SEC = Sugar

If a bowl loses a host team to the title game, then the bowl gets first choice at a replacement team. The rest of the selection order for 2012-13 is: Fiesta, Sugar and Orange.

If BYU is bowl-eligible, it will play in the Poinsettia Bowl.
If Army is bowl-eligible it will play in the Military Bowl.
If Navy is bowl-eligible, it will play in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.
