    Your Big XII Bowl Predictions?

    Just wondering what everyone's take is on this, at this point in the season. Here's how I think things will shake out:

    BCS (Fiesta): Nebraska 12-1 (7-1)
    Cotton: Oklahoma 10-3 (6-2)
    Alamo: Oklahoma State 10-2 (6-2)
    Insight: Missouri 9-3 (5-3)
    Holiday: Iowa State 7-5 (5-3)
    Texas: Kansas State 8-4 (4-4)
    Pinstripe: Texas A&M 7-5 (4-4)
    Dallas Football Classic: Texas Tech 7-5 (3-5)

    Bowl eligible but left out of the Big XII tie-ins:

    Baylor 7-5 (4-4)
    Texas 6-6 (3-5)

    What say you?

    If Texas is bowl eligible, they will get a big 12 bowl, more than likely Dallas or Houston, same with Baylor. I also don't think its a foregone conclusion Nebraska wins the Conference in which case its possible we get two BCS teams from the big 12. This likely leaves Iowa State and KState competing for the PinStripe Bowl and a non-affiliated bowl.

    If Texas finishes 6-6, they cannot be selected for a bowl until all teams with 7 wins already have been selected. If at least eight Big XII teams finish with 7 wins (and I predict nine teams will), Texas cannot get a Big XII bowl bid.

    Colorado 3-9 (0-8)

    ISU comes out ****** against CU and whips Hawkins. Iowa State vs Mizzou, on senior day, for the Telephone Trophy, with bowl implications on the line, I really like CPR to find a way to win.

    Texas will be selected over every 7-5 team if they are bowl eligible. It is up to the bowl committee who they take, not the record as long as they are bowl eligible. ISU went to the Insight bowl last season over Missouri because our fans travel better and they knew they would make more money. A 6-6 Texas would get selected over a 7-5 ISU team and the bowl committees would not even think about it. Also, ISU and Texas both still have to become eligible before you really start this talk.

    Last year Mizzou was 8-4 and Iowa State was 6-6, guess who the Insight Bowl selected

    Yes, the in the recent negotiations for bowls, the Insight bowl now has a bigger payout and therefore is a better bowl to go to.

    I see us finishing 7-5 heading to the Humanitarian or New Mexico Bowl?

    I just looked up the rule. It appears we are both wrong. A 6-6 team may be selected ahead of teams with at least 7 wins, IF all teams with 7 wins still go to bowls with conference ties. Basically, if you get 7 wins, you are guaranteed to go to a conference tie-in bowl ahead of a 6 win team.

    If the Big XII gets eight teams with at least 7 wins, Texas cannot go to a Big XII tie-in bowl (assuming we end up with only one in the BCS - or if we get two in, then nine teams with 7 wins). I think it's very likely that'll happen, so I think Texas will not be going to a Big XII bowl (assuming they end 6-6).

    Re: Your Big XII Bowl Predictions?

    I dont think we even need to worry about Texas anymore. They still need two wins to be bowl eligible. I bet they beat Florida Atlantic but I dont see them getting Okie State or Texas A&M. The cowboys are playing great right now and the aggies always come out to play against Texas. Both are coming off big wins.

    Here's where I think everybody will finish. Bowls are just a guess based on finishing order, overall record, location, and travel reputation.

    SOUTH
    OSU 11-2(7-1) ------ COTTON
    TAMU 8-4(5-3) ------ TEXAS
    OU 9-3(5-3) -------- ALAMO
    BU 7-5(4-4) -------- DALLAS
    TTU 7-5(3-5) ------- NEW MEXICO
    UT 5-7(2-6)

    NORTH
    NU 12-1(7-1) -------- FIESTA
    ISU 7-5(5-3) -------- HOLIDAY
    MU 9-3(5-3) -------- INSIGHT
    KSU 8-4(4-4) ------- PINSTRIPE
    KU 3-9(1-7)
    CU 3-9(0-8)

    Re: Your Big XII Bowl Predictions?

    Final Standings: Oklahoma defeats Nebraska in Big XII title game.

    Oklahoma 11-2
    Nebraska 11-2
    Oklahoma State 10-2
    Missouri 9-3
    Kansas State 8-4
    Texas A&M 8-4
    Texas Tech 7-5
    Iowa State 7-5
    Baylor 7-5

    If 2 BCS bowl selections:

    BCS - Oklahoma
    BCS - Nebraska
    AT&T Cotton - Oklahoma State
    Valero Alamo - Kansas State
    Insight - Iowa State
    Bridgepoint Holiday - Texas A&M
    Texas - Baylor
    New Era Pinstripe - Missouri
    Dallas Football Classic/Eagle Bank - Texas Tech

    Missouri gets the shaft again especially after losing to us. Yes, I pick Iowa State to Insight over A&M. Why? The Holiday Bowl likes the idea of a PAC 10 vs. A&M game and Insight is in love with us.

    If only one BCS selection:

    BCS - Oklahoma
    AT&T Cotton - Nebraska
    Valero Alamo - Oklahoma State
    Insight - Kansas State
    Bridgepoint Holiday - Texas A&M
    Texas - Iowa State
    New Era Pinstripe - Missouri
    Dallas Football Classic/Eagle Bank - Baylor
    At-Large - Texas Tech

    Moral of the story, hope Texas DOES NOT become bowl eligible. If so, all bets are off. Also, hope that Oklahoma defeats a one loss Nebraska in the Big XII title game to better our chances of 2 BCS teams.
