Even though we are twelve 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 whole month 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.
Goodyear Cotton Bowl
Oklahoma State vs Ohio State
Allstate Sugar Bowl
Baylor vs Ole Miss
Iowa State vs Mississippi State
Valero Alamo Bowl
Oklahoma vs Oregon
Kansas State vs Clemson
Guaranteed Rate Bowl
West Virginia vs Rutgers
AutoZone Liberty Bowl
Texas Tech vs South Carolina
We have quite the shake up this week after last weekend. Oklahoma State now finds themselves in a playoff spot while Oklahoma slides all the way down to the Alamo Bowl.
Much like Oklahoma State, Baylor has risen up from the Alamo Bowl to a NY6 bowl as they take on Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl.
Iowa State stays put in the Texas Bowl and Kansas State has a new opponent for the famous Cheez-It Bowl as they are set to take on a talented Clemson team.
The Red Raiders were welcomed back last week after securing their sixth win on the year as they remain in the Liberty Bowl. However, with Florida out of the bowl picture they will face South Carolina.
Finally, we have West Virginia who after their win against Texas appear to be set up to get that magical sixth win this weekend against Kansas. The Mountaineers are projected to square off against Rutgers in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl. Speaking of Texas, they are out of the bowl picture along with TCU.
