Michigan will play South Carolina in the Outback Bowl on January 1 at 1:00pm EST. The game is in Tampa, Florida and will be televised on ESPN. Freep.com says:
No. 19 Michigan will face No. 11 South Carolina. Facing the Gamecocks will be a major challenge. They finished 10-2, with losses to Florida and Louisiana State (by two points). They are coming off their best win of the season, defeating No. 14 Clemson in the season finale.
Michigan State will play TCU in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. The game is in Tempe, Arizona on December 29 at 10:15PM EST on ESPN. Detnews.com says:
It might not be exactly the spot Michigan State hoped it would finish, but the Spartans were thrilled, nonetheless, to accept a bid on Sunday to play in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl on Dec. 29 in Tempe, Ariz.
The Spartans, who finished a disappointing 6-6 and 3-5 in the Big Ten, will face TCU from the Big 12.
It is the sixth straight bowl game for Michigan State, which became bowl eligible with a victory in the regular-season finale at Minnesota.
Central Michigan will play Western Kentucky in the Little Caesar’s Bowl. The game is at Ford Field in Detroit. Watch it on December 26 at 7:30pm EST on ESPN. Freep.com says:
Two “hungry teams” will be playing in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl when Central Michigan (6-6) faces Western Kentucky (7-5) at Ford Field at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 26.
The Chippewas haven’t been to a bowl since the GMAC Bowl after the 2009 season, the last of four straight bowls that included three consecutive trips to the Motor City Bowl in 2006-08. The Hilltoppers are making their first bowl appearance in school history.
