    Bowl Situation?

    So how will the Big XII bowl tie ins wash out? Does the reduction to 10 teams give us the opportunity to end up in a higher prestige bowl with a moderately successful season? Will Nebraska still get invited to a bowl this year or can the Big XII sort of steer down their invite?


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Not sure about the first question, but Nebraska is still going to be a Big XII bowl this year I'm pretty sure (that is, if they make it ).

    Nothing about the big12 is changing this year.

    Re: Bowl Situation?

    WE are still locked in to all of our bowl agreements. If a team in the big 12 does not qualify for a bowl, then that bowl will then select an at large team. So basically the last and second to last bowls, most likely are in danger of not having a big 12 team in their bowl in the 10 team era.

    The Cotton Bowl will find a way to pass on Nebraska if slotted.
    I'm pretty confident with this prediction.
