    Nebraska Would love to see them shut out, but don't see it happening.

    Re: Big 12 bowl bids, who else gets in?

    B12 will get 2 BCS bids for sure. Hopefully one is the NC game. I don't think we will fulfill our allotment for all the games though. Texas Bowl and Independance might be looking elsewhere.

    6 teams: Missouri, Kansas, Tech, Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State are in.

    Who from the following gets in?
    Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas St, Baylor or Texas A&M
    From most likely to least likely:

    Nebraska: 5-4
    Remaining schedule: Kansas, @ K-State, Colorado

    Colorado: 4-5
    Remaining schedule: Iowa St, Oklahoma St, @ Nebraska

    K-State: 4-5
    Remaining schedule: @ Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa State

    aTm: 4-5
    Remaining schedule: Oklahoma, @ Baylor, @ Texas

    Baylor: 3-6
    Remaining schedule: @ Texas, aTm, @ Texas Tech

    You can automatically eliminate aTm and Baylor - it just ain't gonna happen with who they both have left on their schedules. That leaves Nebraska, Colorado, and K-State. All three can make it, but I think it's more likely that 2 of the three make it. In any case, ISU is a "must win" for both Colorado and K-State - they can ill-afford to lose to us, simply because it becomes really tough for either of them to get to 6 without them beating us.

    Re: Big 12 bowl bids, who else gets in?

    I feel that that Gator Bowl will take Notre Dame if they end up eligible for it. Notre Dame is still part of that option as well, right?

    I think Nebby will get a bowl. And KState or CU? man, I hope we play the role of spoiler, but even after beating us, I'm not sure that either have a good chance at getting a bowl. KState seems to be looking the better of the two teams, imo.

    It probably opens the door for some Big 10 teams really. I could see us not filling all of our allotments and I'm sure those Bowls would love to grab a 6-6 Iowa which is known for bringing people.

    Re: Big 12 bowl bids, who else gets in?

    Nebraska has to beat Colorado. Colorado has to beat Nebraska. KStayte has tro beat Nebraska. Looks like Nebraska controls their destiny at home. From what I have seen of Colorado and KState, both teams may not win six. Nebraska goes Insight. Baylor and aTm play excellent teams and will not factor.

    It could be the Big Six versus the Little Six in the end.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Big 12 bowl bids, who else gets in?

    last year the Big12 went 4-3 (CU/aTm/OK all losing).

    I still see 7 bowls this year but with a 5-2 mark.

    -keep.

    Nebbie could sure use a victory over K-State and Colorado but I see the Huskers losing to either the wildcats or the buffs and I dont see KU losing to Nebraska even in Lincoln...

    Kansas U has way too much firepower for Nebraska to stop..

    Maybe, but KU hasn't won in Lincoln in something like 40 years. KU's corners are shaky and new to the position. The starting LCB started the season as a free safety. The starting RCB is a true freshman who started the season as KU's 5th receiver. KU should do okay slowing down NU's run attack, but don't be surprised to see Joey Ganz with just as many yards as Todd.

    At betus.com, NU is a 1 point favorite.

    It should be a good game. It's a joke and a shame that the CU/ISU toilet bowl got a television slot and KU@NU didn't.
