CBS Sports has been updating this page each week through the end of college football's 2022 season as an increasing number of teams became bowl eligible ahead of the College Football Playoff and the bowl selection process. Check out the final college football bowl projections ahead of the CFP Selection Show. For a complete breakdown, check out Jerry Palm's dedicated page.
In order for an FBS team to officially become bowl-eligible, it needs at least six wins with a minimum winning percentage of .500. A total of 82 teams are needed to fill all 41 bowl games. Teams can only count one win against an FCS opponent toward the total number of wins needed for bowl eligibility.
Following the conference championship games in Week 14, there are officially 81 bowl-eligible teams with one slot still open. That is being taken by 5-7 Rice via APR qualification. New Mexico State, also a five-win team, received a waiver to play in a bowl game from the NCAA.
