Big 12 bowl projections

Here’s how the Big 12’s bowl picture looks heading into the final weekend of the season. 

Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma State vs. BCS at-large
Pokes are likely to draw Northern Illinois if the Huskies beat Bowling Green next week. 

AT&T Cotton Bowl: Baylor vs. SEC No. 3/4
Baylor still needs a little help, but the Orange Bowl is within reach. 

Alamo Bowl: Oklahoma vs. Pac-12 No. 2
Sooners will get the nod ahead of Texas thanks to their superior nonconference performance. 

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl: Texas vs. Big Ten No. 4/5
Texas could easily be in line for a reunion with Nebraska. A win over Baylor might propel Texas into the Cotton Bowl, too, if Oklahoma State wins earlier in the day. 

Holiday Bowl: Kansas State vs. Pac-12 No. 3
No reason K-State should be behind Tech in bowl selection.

Texas Bowl: Texas Tech vs. Big Ten No. 6
Tech is fortunate that the Big 12 only has six bowl teams. A team with five consecutive losses is a tough sell.
