2012 bowl projections: Stanford picked for Rose Bowl

Stephen Dunn

The latest round of bowl game projections have been released.

It has been a wild year in the Pac-12. While just about everyone had the Oregon Ducks winning the Pac-12 North, the Stanford Cardinal snuck out a big road win over UO, and took care of business to reach the conference championship game. Stanford will face UCLA on Friday night, and the winner will advance to the Rose Bowl.

According to the latest bowl game projections from SB Nation, the Cardinal will win the Pac-12 Championship Game and play in the Rose Bowl. They will be taking on the Nebraska Cornhuskers, which face Wisconsin in the Big 10 Championship Game.

As for the BCS National Championship Game, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are projected to play the Alabama Crimson Tide. Alabama has to face Georgia for the SEC Championship Game, and the winner of that game will likely be in the national title game.
