    9 Bowl eligible teams in Big 12

    This scenario is possible.... who gets left out?

    I will be rooting for Texas Tech to go down to Mizzou and Baylor and finish 5-7.

    You like to think we get picked over Mizzou again.

    Re: 9 Bowl eligible teams in Big 12

    I see the Big 12 taking care of it's own, so Missouri will be left out since aTm will have fan support/exposure for the lower-tier bowls

    Re: 9 Bowl eligible teams in Big 12

    KU is for sure not bowling. A&M is handling KU right now so they will get to 6 and hopefully lose to Texas to stay at 6. Mizzou has Tech at home at plays KU at Arrowhead so I am pretty sure they will get one more win to go bowling. Tech maybe SOL, they play at Mizzou and home against Baylor. Bottom line, I think we have 8 teams bowling with Tech and KU SOL but it is still very possible Tech picks up a win and we have 9/10 teams bowling. As ISU fans, we probably want a little as bowl eligible teams as possible so we can go to a better bowl however.

    There are always at large spots as well. Some of the at large spots might be better than the pinstripe bowl.

    no chance we get left out...Mizzou and A&M should be worried.

    Re: 9 Bowl eligible teams in Big 12

    A lot of bowl projection sites are predicting that the New Mexico Bowl won't fill it spots. Not a good pay and an uninspiring opponent (MWC #4/5), but it would probably be a win for the Big XII and a 6-6 team is probably just happy to be in a bowl anyway.

    Mizzou especially. For TAMU,the houston bowl may want them to guarantee a crowd

    Re: 9 Bowl eligible teams in Big 12

    We need Navy to lose today at San Jose State or lose to Army. That would guarantee 8 bowl ties for the Big 12. I think the Holiday will take us just because we travel so well.

    Re: 9 Bowl eligible teams in Big 12

    I would put our fan base ahead of Tech, Mizzou, and Baylor. Hopefully that jumps us up a couple bowls.

    Absolutely ahead of us for Insight, Holiday, and other bowls outside of Texas as far as travel, but we brought 45K to the Texas Bowl last year. So that will play a factor with bowls in Texas.

    Re: 9 Bowl eligible teams in Big 12

    I am not willing to say we will be 6-6 at the end. Two games left, defense playing lights out and defense wins in the long way. I still seeing us take at least 1 more game and then a sure Big 12 bowl. I said in August I was looking for 7-5 for this season and it is still possible.

    I wish. With the Cotton Bowl as the #2 bowl, that is probably going to the OU-OSU loser, or, if both make BCS bowls, one of Texas, Baylor, or K-State.

    I think Holiday or Insight is the best we can hope for at this point. You know Insight would more than love to have us back if they can get their grubby paws on us, and Holiday has to know ISU's traveling reputation by now...

    This.

    Bowl reps know we as a fan base travel well, and a bowl would be foolish not to take us after the wins we have come up with this year.

    Re: 9 Bowl eligible teams in Big 12

    BCS - Tostitos Fiesta----OU or OSU
    AT&T Cotton (SEC)----OU or OSU
    Valero Alamo (Pac-10)----UT or KSU or BU
    Insight (Big Ten)----UT or KSU or BU
    Bridgepoint Holiday (Pac-10)----OU or OSU or BU
    Texas (Big Ten)----ISU or TAM or MU
    New Era Pinstripe (Big East)----ISU or TAM or MU

    (Sorry for the format, it won't take my spaces for columns)
    Team Wins Left to play
    KSU (8-2) EKY, Kent, Miami, BU, MU, TTU, KU, TAM UT, ISU
    Baylor (6-3) TCU, SFA, Rice, ISU, MU, KU OU, TTU, UT
    Texas (6-3) Rice, BYU, UCLA, ISU, KU, TTU KSU, TAM, BU
    ISU (6-4) UNI, EIU, UCONN, TTU, KU, OSU OU, KSU
    aTm (6-5) SMU, Idaho, TTU, BU, ISU, KU UT
    MU (5-5) MOH, WILL, ISU, TAM, UT TTU KU

    You have to think even if we don't win another game, the Big XII would love to put us above both TAMMY and MIZ-DUI.
