    BigXII best conference top to bottom - Steve Malchow

    The Big 12 has nine of its 10 teams bowl eligible with one week left to play in the season, and it's officially the highest percentage of bowl-eligible teams of any conference ever, according to Steve Malchow, the associate athletic director at Iowa State.

    No conference has ever equaled that 90 percent clip set by the Big 12 this season, and the league surpassed three previous record holders.

    "The closest were the ACC in 2008, the SEC in 2009 and 2010 and the Big Ten in 2011," Malchow writes. "Each of those conferences had 10-of-12 (83%) schools participate in post-season play those seasons."

    It's also by far the highest percentage in 2012. The Pac-12 has 67 percent of its teams eligible for bowls, and the SEC has 64 percent.

    He was counting Tulsa. Iowa and Kansas are staying home for the holidays. Western Illinois is FCS.

    They certainly aren't our Super Bowl. They drag our schedule down too much for that. More of an exhibition game these days.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    The funny part is it wasn't long ago when people were screaming to remove Iowa from the schedule and put in a cupcake. Looks like they took care of that for us.
