Even though we are just nine weeks into the college football season, that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead to what the future may hold. There are still plenty of important games to get through and a long way to go but it is never too early to start thinking about the postseason.
Brett McMurphy from the Action Network recently released his latest college football bowl projections. It is always interesting to see how things change from week to week but here is what Brett currently has listed for the Big 12.
Capital One Orange Bowl
Oklahoma vs Georgia
Allstate Sugar Bowl
Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M
Kansas State vs Mississippi State
Valero Alamo Bowl
Baylor vs Utah
Iowa State vs Clemson
Guaranteed Rate Bowl
West Virginia vs Purdue
AutoZone Liberty Bowl
Texas vs Tennessee
Oklahoma remains in the College Football Playoff picture and Oklahoma State goes back the Sugar Bowl. The Cowboys have an interesting opponent in Texas A&M which I would be all in for.
Kansas State jumped from the Guaranteed Rate Bowl up to the Texas Bowl and Texas slips all the way down the bowl list to the Liberty Bowl. Meanwhile, Baylor goes back into the Alamo Bowl and Iowa State will face Clemson in the famous Cheez-It Bowl in Orlando.
Perhaps the biggest shake up is at the bottom with West Virginia. They have entered the bowl conversation and have replaced Texas Tech who is now entirely out of the picture.
