    Bowl bid uncertainty (IF 6-6 happens)

    Obviously, there's no bowl without a win over Missouri. But I pose this question to fans who understand the bowl-bid shakedown better than I do.

    Even if ISU finishes at 6-6/4-4, the Big 12 a****id situation looks precarious. A&M beat Baylor so both teams are clearly in; neither can finish worse than 4-4 and have 7 wins, so an at large is worst-case

    Tech is done with conference play at 3-5, so that team is no serious threat if it came to either-or for B12 position but could easily finish 7-5 with non-conference weaklings left on the schedule.

    We could hope KSU tanks vs. Colorado next week, to finish at 3-5.

    And, alas, Texas is probably still alive, barely.

    What is the best-case scenario for ISU, if the Cyclones can knock off the Tigers?

    Think of how different things would be if ISU went 1-2 vs KSU/NU/CU, and not 0-3.

    At 6-6 we will be in a bowl. I promise. There will be vacancies.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Yeah, a 6-6 ISU may not be going to the Fiesta Bowl, but we'll get an invite from somewhere desolate.

    So lets pull it together and beat the Tigers next week! Pretty please...

    Can we please stop with this already? IF WE BEAT MIZZOU, WE ARE GOING TO A BOWL! Period. End of story.

    My question was less a matter of will there be a bowl bid, but what it would be, based on other slots filled by auto qualifiers in the Big 12.

    I have a feeling it'll be moot, anyway, because this looks like a 5-7 finish. But I didn't foresee a decent bounce-back after the Utah/OU double-whammy, either.
