This week's episode: Independence, Military or Pizza Bowls.

I never thought that Boston College's game vs. North Carolina last weekend would make or break the Eagles' bowl chances in 2013. Others didn't see it that way.

SB Nation: No bowl

ESPN (Mark Schlabach): Little Caesar Pizza Bowl vs. Ball State

ESPN (Brad Edwards): Independence Bowl vs. Vanderbilt

ESPN (Adelson / Dinich): No bowl

CBS Sports: No bowl

Sporting News: Military Bowl vs. Utah

National Football Post: Independence Bowl vs. Vanderbilt

Huffington Post: Independence Bowl vs. Vanderbilt

USA Today: No bowl

College Football News: No bowl

Orlando Sentinel: No bowl

Following Boston College's 34-10 loss to North Carolina, both SB Nation's Jason Kirk and ESPN's Andrea Adelson and Heather Dinich dropped the Eagles from the bowl picture (SB Nation had BC in the Independence Bowl; AA/HD the Military Bowl). For what it's worth, AA/HD still have Florida State in the BCS National Championship Game this week, which, unless they are expecting Alabama or Oregon to drop a game the rest of the way, ain't happening.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach lays claim to the week's most interesting bowl projection, placing the Eagles in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl opposite Ball State. Schlabach predicts that the ACC will have more bowl eligible teams than conference tie-ins, with Pittsburgh (Independence) and Maryland (Military) taking the final two official tie-ins. That leaves Boston College to fill the Big Ten's slot in the Detroit-based bowl game.
