    Big 12 Bowl Projections, Week 14, Nov. 29

    The Big 12 got exactly what it wanted, and without a conference championship game.

    Oklahoma is a 99% lock to go into the playoff as the Big 12’s One True Champion, but the league missed out on potentially having Baylor at least in the argument for a second spot with the loss to TCU. It doesn’t matter – the Big 12 will get its share of good bowl matchups.

    The biggest key next week is Kansas State, needing to beat West Virginia to get to 6-6 and bowl eligibility, but it still might get in at 5-7 because of the NCAA’s APR exemption thanks to the lack of bowl eligible teams.

    According to the pecking order, West Virginia will finish higher than Texas Tech, but the better bowl the two will be up for is the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl. For fan interest, let’s call Texas Tech being put there to potentially face Texas A&M from the SEC, while West Virginia would get a slightly better geographic slot in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.
