    Re: bowl predictions?

    I'm going to go with a non-Big 12 bowl tie in unless we can beat WVU.

    I think Baylor is going to beat Tech and become bowl eligible which will take away another Texas bowl. I also think Big 12 only has about a 30% chance of getting two in the BCS now which will push everything down a spot as well.

    Alot hinges on the WVU game. Win and it could be as good as Holiday. Lose and it might be a bowl not involved with the Big 12.

    Re: bowl predictions?

    Just posted this in the other bowl thread:

    If we beat WVU, they and Kansas both finish behind us in the standings, guaranteed. TCU has OK and TX coming up, so they probably also end at 3-6, behind us as well.

    With us at 4-5 and TCU losing out, that leaves TTU and Baylor to jockey with for the 5, 6, and 7 Big XII bowl selections.

    Best case IMO: We beat WVU, Baylor beats TTU and loses to Okie State, TCU loses out. We're 4-5 with TTU battling for the 5th and 6th selections from the Big XII. Baylor, TCU, WVU, and Kasnas all finish at 3-6 or worse.

    The WVU game is critical - if we lose we could finish only ahead of Kansas on the Big XII.

    Excellent. Thanks to your prediction, there is now a 0% chance of this happening.

    Re: bowl predictions?

    Id say the big 12 has a high chance of 2 in the BCS either way. If KSU wins out and OU wins out, they both get bids. If OU wins out and UT wins out, they both get bids (OU the auto-bid, and UT would be a 2 loss team with enough ratings and attendance value to make any bowl want them).

    Re: bowl predictions?

    Id say that its either ISU vs Syracuse in NYC or ISU vs Minnesota in Houston. I think WVU gets picked ahead of ISU and it will come down to wether Menikie wants a Texas school or a Regional game with Minnesota almost assured of that bowl spot

    Re: bowl predictions?

    So how likely is it to get to a Holiday Bowl if we manage WV? Would love to plan Christmas in San Diego. Who should I be cheering for or against? Thanks

    +1, though if we end up at 6-6 we probably don't have the right to be "picky".

    I see KSU beating Texas thus eliminating them and Okie State beating Okie thus eliminating them, so we only get one team.

    Plus I would like to see Baylor lose out and not make a bowl

    A two loss Big 12 team is not going to jump a one loss Clemson. Especially if they are coming off beating S. Carolina. Clemson travels very well also.

    ACC and PAC are major competition for two BCS bids right now and the Big 12 needs losses by Clemson, Stanford, Oregon and Winning out by OU. UT/KSU winner really doesn't matter. Although KSU winning would be better to keep them at 1 loss.

    That said, after watching OU yesterday, I'm not sure they can take OSU. OSU is playing very well right now. TCU isn't exactly a slouch either.

    Big 12 will likely eat its own as it did last year. I agree. Although I think Baylor beats Tech, but I'd like to see them lose out as well.

    why would West Virginia get sent to California?

    not just you predicting that, I just don't understand it unless they don't care about ticket sales.
