LSU may want to soon start scouting Michigan State.
Although official bowl pairings won't be determined until Sunday, December 3, more than half of the 11 bowl projections surveyed after the weekend have the No. 17 Louisiana State University Tigers (9-3) facing the No. 19 Michigan State Spartans (9-3) on New Year's Day.
The only question really left is where the game will take place. Four projections have LSU facing Michigan State at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla., and another two projections have those teams meeting at the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla.
The other five projections have LSU playing either No. 15 Notre Dame (9-3), No. 20 Northwestern (9-3) or N.C. State (8-4) in either Orlando, Tampa or Jacksonville.
