    A final look at where national outlets are projecting the Vols to play this postseason. Final selections will be made by Sunday evening. Most of these were made following Championship Saturday yesterday.

    ESPN (McMurphy): Outback Bowl vs. Northwestern 

    ESPN (Schlabach): Outback Bowl vs. Northwestern

    CBS: (Palm): Outback Bowl vs. Northwestern 

    SBNation (Kirk): Outback Bowl vs. Northwestern 

    USA Today (Smith): Music City Bowl vs. Louisville

    Campus Insiders (Fiutak): Liberty Bowl vs. West Virginia

    Yahoo: Music City Bowl vs. Penn State

    Sports Illustrated (Ellis): Outback Bowl vs. Michigan 

    FanSided: Music City vs. Penn State

    247Sports (Crawford): Outback Bowl vs. Northwestern 

    RTI’s take: We’d be surprised if it’s not Outback Bowl against Northwestern at that this point, though last year proved that there always can be surprises. The Citrus Bowl is likely giving UT a long look, but Florida, and having a local 10-win football team that would likely sell a lot of tickets, might be too tough to pass up there.

    A Music City Bowl or Belk Bowl upset is certainly possible, but we’re thinking the Vols will in Tampa when it’s all said and done this evening.
