Big 12 bowl projections: Week 12
By ESPN.com staff
The only big news for the Big 12 when it comes to bowls this week was Iowa State's loss. The Cyclones were set up to earn a sixth win, but ran into a motivated Colorado team that played its best game since a win over Georgia in nonconference play. (By the way, looking back, how did that happen? Georgia gave Auburn a good run at Auburn on Saturday.)
That means that barring an upset by the Cyclones over Missouri on Saturday and Texas wins over Florida Atlantic and Texas A&M, the Big 12 will only have eight bowl-eligible teams.
Worse for Iowa State is losing Austen Arnaud, a three-year starter at quarterback who'll miss his final game in Ames as a Cyclone, and make it harder for Iowa State to pull the upset of the Tigers.
