Three weeks remain, and we have 51 bowl-eligible teams for 82 spots. This doesn't include James Madison and Jacksonville State, who are in the process of transitioning from FCS to FBS.

If there aren't enough bowl-eligible teams, JMU and JSU will be selected first to fill any openings, followed by teams with 5-7 records. I’m still projecting there won’t be enough bowl-eligible teams to fill all of the spots.

Here are my Week 11 projections — and each projection includes the projected point spread for each bowl based on Action Network senior writer Collin Wilson’s updated college football betting power ratings.

*The highest-rated champion from the Group of Five conferences (American, Conference USA, Mid-American, Mountain West and Sun Belt) will be selected to play in either the Peach or Fiesta Bowl if it does not qualify for the College Football Playoff.
**James Madison and Jacksonville State are in its second year transitioning from FCS to FBS. They can only receive a bid if there are not enough teams with at least six wins to fill all the bowls. This week, I do not project enough six-win teams, allowing the Dukes and Gamecocks to receive a bowl berth.
