    Bowl scenario for Kansas can hurt us

    If Kansas beats Missouri at Arrowhead, they will be 6-6. Let's say we lose to Missouri, then we would be 6-6 also. With that, big 12 might only have 3 teams with less than 6-6 bowl eligible record. Does Iowa State make it to a bowl game? I think we should because we have a better conference record than Kansas. What do you think?

    Re: Bowl scenario for Kansas can hurt us

    If Kansas goes 6-6, they would 2-7 in the conference. I have heard that KU fans do not travel worth a crap to bowl games and that it is very well known. I think ISU beats out KU in bowl selection unless KU upsets Texas this weekend

    That's true. However, they have a better record in recent years than us.

    Bowl committees would chose Iowa State over Kansas in a heartbeat. The bigger game you need to watch is KSU vs NU. If KSU wins, they'll go ahead of us.

    There's no way Kansas State beats Nebraska at Nebbietown. I can't believe we beat Nebraska at home. With Suh in the mix and a senior day at Nebraska, KSU will be limited to field goals.

    It's basketball season in Lawrence. They've been to the Orange Bowl and Alamo in recent years. Nobody would go to Shreveport. Iowa State will take at least 15-17k down there IMO.

    Probably a little overstated, but I agree with the general concensus. Even if KU gets to 6-6 by beating MU, ISU will be selected first. KU will be limping to the end of the season (will lose 6 straight after this weekend) with a fanbase that isn't known for FB support anyway.

    Have you been watching the Big XII North all year? I'm scared to death because ANYTHING can happen.

    With Nebraska's offense field goals might be enough.

    Normally I'd agree, but most people were saying the same thing about ISU's chances in Lincoln before Nebraska turned the ball over 8 times against us. The way this season's gone in the Big 12, I'd say nothing is out of the realm of possibility.

    You mean 2-6, right? And we'd be 3-5, so wouldn't that put us above them in the pecking order regardless?

    In this scenario we'd be above KU and below MU in the standings. I don't see how KU plays into our bowl chances unless, like you said, they top Texas.

    My bad...I did mean 2-6. Which just amde me think...KU's sole conference win so far has come against ISU.

    Yes by virtue of us having a better conference record, we would be ahead of them in the conference standings.

    Re: Bowl scenario for Kansas can hurt us

    KU actually has traveled very well in there last two bowls, but you're right about this year. If KU goes to some worthless bowl at 6-6 nobody is going to have any interest in going to that. I would be surprised to see KU win another game anyway.
