CFBTN 101: Forecasting bowl eligibility

Arkansas has lost three straight games. That last happened in 2008, Petrino's first season, when the Razorbacks lost to Alabama, Texas, and Florida. In 2012, Arkansas has lost to Alabama again, but now they've also lost to Louisiana-Monroe and Rutgers. 2008 is also significant because it is also the last season Arkansas was not bowl eligible. Arkansas gets Texas A&M this weekend and a chance to match its 2004 stretch of four straight losses.

"Team: Summary" offers a quick overview of the expected outcomes - number of wins and losses, going undefeated or being bowl eligible, division and conference titles - for all 124 teams. The model is now giving Arkansas an 8% chance of being bowl eligible this season and projecting them to 3.8 wins this season.
