Big 12 Bowl Projections – Week 12


Big 12 bowl projections for Week 12. Keep an eye on Oklahoma, while West Virginia remains in the College Football Playoff mix as well.


Do not discount the Big 12 in the race toward a berth in the College Football Playoff.

Oklahoma remains a strong candidate despite having two losses because it is one of the hotter teams in the country, while West Virginia has just one setback and continues to impress. Oklahoma at West Virginia is a huge game next Saturday, while Oklahoma State travels to Oklahoma the following week. Imagine if the Cowboys did not lost at home to Central Michigan in the game that featured a controversial ending. How high would the Pokes be in the CFP rankings?

No matter how everything shakes out, an Oklahoma State-USC Alamo Bowl would be quite the fun watch, and that is the projection for the Pokes this week.
