In my final Bowl Projections for the season I will tell you why this historical season for the Big 12 may get even better with 2 teams in the BCS. As usual I'll start out with the best and go to the pinstripe bowl.
BCS National Championship Game- Oklahoma State- I think the beating they gave the Sooners combined with the fact that there is a lot of anti-rematch sentiment going around will be enough to move the Cowboys into the second spot in the BCS rankings.
For the rest of my Big 12 bowl projections keep reading after the jump.
Fiesta Bowl-K-State- I know I will probably take some flack for this pick but I'm sticking with it and here is why: as I explained in the post game thread (just search for Bama Michigan), I think the sugar will be filled and the Fiesta bowl will try to get a Big 12 team, there is certainly precedence for this happening, and I think it happens again in 2011 and I think K-State is the team they take.
Cotton Bowl-Baylor- I think that Baylor will get the nod just because they beat OU and the fact that OU lost 2 of their last 3 games in embarrassing fashion and if the Cotton Bowl exec's have even half a brain they know that Baylor is much more entertaining to watch then an OU team that consistently beats themselves over the head with a pan and eats glue, it seems like we have a replacement for our favorite "special" Big 12 member.
Alamo Bowl-Oklahoma- The Sooners will finally get to see what happens when you lose 3 games, two of those being to teams in front of you, and will get put in the San Antonio where the only their asinine band will travel to.
Insight Bowl-Texas- Missouri is No. 4 in the Big 12 standings but since they are leaving there is a good chance that they will get put on the short end of the Big 12 bowl bids.
Holiday Bowl-Iowa State- This is a lot like the one above, the Big 12 try and pressure the bowls into taking members that will be here next year before ones that are leaving.
Texas Bowl-Missouri- The tiger's will get the second worst bowl selection of the Big 12 just because they own the tie breaker over A&M.
Pinstripe Bowl-A&M- This is the best and most pure form of revenge I can think of, not only are they going to a bowl game without their head coach they will enter the meat grinder with a new one next year.
