    What do you think the Big XII's bowl record will be?

    Independence Bowl
    North Carolina 24
    Missouri 41

    Already happened, so the Big 12 started off 1-0

    Holiday Bowl on Dec 28th
    Texas vs. Cal

    The line is Texas by 3 1/2. Sagarin predictor says Texas by 4.5, Massey gives Texas a 58% chance of a win.

    Alamo Bowl on Dec 29th
    Baylor vs. Washington

    The line is Baylor by 9 1/2. Sagarin Predictor says Baylor by 11, Massey gives Baylor a 79% chance of a win.

    Pinstripe Bowl on Dec 30th
    Iowa State vs. Rutgers.

    The line is Rutgers by 1 1/2. Sagarin predictor says Rutgers by 1.5, Massey gives Iowa State a 56% chance of a win.

    Insight Bowl on Dec 30th
    Oklahoma vs. Iowa

    The line is Oklahoma by 14. Sagarin predictor says Oklahoma by 18.5, Massey gives Oklahoma a 89% chance of a win.

    Meineke Car Care of Texas Bowl on Dec 31st
    Texas A&M vs. Northwestern

    The line is A&M by 10. Sagarin predictor says A&M by 15, Massey gives A&M a 85% chance of a win.

    Fiesta Bowl on January 2nd
    Oklahoma State vs. Standford

    The line is Oklahoma State by 3 1/2. Sagarin predictor says Oklahoma State by 3, Massey gives Oklahoma a 61% chance of a win.

    Cotton Bowl on Jan 6th
    Kansas St. vs. Arkansas

    The line is Arkansas by 7 1/2. Sagarin predictor says Arkansas by 3, Massey gives K-State a 31% chance of a win.


    We're favored in 6 of the 8 bowls, and I am confident that Iowa State will get the upset over rutgers, so I think there is a very good chance that we'll go into the Cotton bowl at 7-0. I think that even that game is winnable. However, I think there will be a stumble somewhere along the way. I think that either K-State or A&M will fumble and we'll end the bowl season 7-1.

    Just looking at the match-ups, my first thought is 6-2. Not going to guess how it will all shake out, but I'm going with 6-2.

    Either 7-1 with Kstate losing or 6-2 with Kstate losing and A&M just mailing it in.

    are we still considering MU and TAM Big 12 teams? I'd rather count WVU and TCU.

    Re: What do you think the Big XII's bowl record will be?

    The only losses I picked for the Big 12 in my bowl picks were Kansas State and Texas A&M. I just think A&M has given up on the season even though they have way more talent on their team than Northwestern.

    I picked the Big 12 to win every game except KSU losing to Arkansas.

    Re: What do you think the Big XII's bowl record will be?

    I don't see any way that K-State hangs with Arkansas. I would have to say 6-2 or 5-3, as there is usually an upset along the way. We're roughly a toss up, but I think we get the W

    Re: What do you think the Big XII's bowl record will be?

    I'm really hoping for 8-0. Saying the conference was perfect in the post-season lends weight to the argument that they got shafted out of the BCS. K-State shelling Arkansas (and finishing the job A&M should have taken care of in the first place) would really help the Big 12/SEC argument this year.

    I can handle A&M choking against Northwestern, though, so I'm going to go with 7-1.

    Re: What do you think the Big XII's bowl record will be?

    Shouldn't we assume that A&M wins the first half, and dramatically collapses for the loss in the 2nd half?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    6-2.

    KSU may pull a surprise like ISU.

    aTm blows the fourth quarter and Texas become slugs.

    You seriously have Oklahoma losing? I think they might not cover the spread, but there is almost no way they don't get the W.
