    Does the Big 12...

    Necessarily need a team to reach the national championship in order to accumulate two BCS bids for the conference? I mean obviously it helps, but is it entirely necessary?

    No, but any time it's two SEC teams and their boring offenses in the title game, everyone loses.

    If Oklahoma beats both us and Oklahoma State, it is highly likely both Oklahoma teams will be in BCS Bowl games.

    It would be tough, but if the computers had their way then Kansas State would have a shot at a BCS game; however those humans have them voted down too low and with only 1 game remaining (against us) they would need a lot of help above them and of course be able to handle us in the final week.

    Don't be so sure... OSU losing 2 of last 3 and the fact they don't travel well might push them out. KSU has a better shot IMO.

    College Football Bowls - CBSSports.com

    Jerry Palm thinks we only get one. It will be really sad if the Big 10 gets 2 in...

    Re: Does the Big 12...

    I think our best chance is if...

    ISU beats OU and loses to KSU.

    KSU beats ISU.

    OSU beats OU.

    OSU and KSU get bids.
