Which bowl game will the Gophers play in?

Predictions put the Gophers in one of four bowl games.

The Gophers football team might be spending Christmas in New York City if they're invited to play in the Pinstripe Bowl as CBS Sports' Jerry Palm predicts. 

Palm's latest bowl projections have the Gophers playing Virginia in the Dec. 27 Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. 

ESPN's college football analysts predict the Gophers to play Duke in the Dec. 26 Quick Lane Bowl at Ford Field in Detroit, or in the Redbox Bowl against Oregon on New Year's Eve at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. 

CollegeFootballNews.com also project the Gophers in the Redbox Bowl but has them playing Arizona State. 

Sporting News predicts the Gophers will meet Virginia Tech in the Quick Lane Bowl. 

Minnesota qualified for a bowl game for the first time under head coach P.J. Fleck thanks to their dominating win over the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday.
