    Big 12 Bowl Affiliations

    Is the pecking order and bowl affiliations changed yearly or is it changed every few years? Basically, will this year's Big 12 bowl games and order of selection be the same as next year?

    It's subject to change, but it will be pretty similar. Only difference is Military and TicketCity rotate every other year. The top 5 bowls have been Big 12 staples for the past decade.

    1.) Fiesta (BCS)
    2.) Cotton
    3.) Alamo
    4.) Insight
    5.) Holiday
    6.) Texas
    7.) Pinstripe
    8.) Military

    Some bowl may want to change with the new Big 12, but I kind of doubt it.

    I wish they could switch around all the bowl games a little bit more. The Big Ten seems to have the best bowl destinations (Capital One, Outback, etc), not to mention the Rose Bowl for the BCS.

    IMO, Glendale > Pasadena. I know most would probably disagree. I would obviously say the better venue is the Rose Bowl Stadium.

    Big 12 isn't guaranteed a Military Bowl spot in 2011.

    2010 - ACC vs CUSA
    2011 - ACC vs Navy*
    2012 - ACC vs Army**
    2013 - ACC vs Big 12

    *If Navy isn't eligible in 2011, then a Big 12 team will fill that spot (assuming one is eligible).
    **If Army isn't eligible in 2012, then a CUSA team will fill that spot.

    If Navy IS eligible in 2011, a Big 12 team could fill an open spot in the TicketCity Bowl (Big Ten vs CUSA).

    Not a huge deal, with the new Big 12 having a 9 conference game schedule, probably won't see more than 7 bowl eligible teams, anyway. Pac-10 only had six eligible teams this year. I think 7 tie-ins for a 10 team conference is solid.

    After what went down on its inaugral year, I would be surprised to see this one around next year. That was just a bad idea all around. Between travel, hotels, and weather in an outdoor stadium in NYC in December, I can't imagine the bowl making money.

    Fine with me. That's the one bowl I would not go to. Maybe the Big 12 can get in the Sun Bowl or something.

    The Big 10 and Pac 10 will be tied into the Rose bowl because of History so unless they have a team playing for the national title that's going to be the match up inless there is a playoff which I don't see happening

    Why oh why can't the big XII get ONE freaking bowl game in the state of Florida instead of all these in Texas..

    Oh, wait, I see, never mind.

    Seriously, I do wish there was still a Florida destination bowl game tie in.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Agreed. We used to have the Champs bowl in florida, it was one of our lower tie-ins, but it kicks the **** out of NYC in december..
