Big 12 Bowl Projections – Week 15


Big 12 bowl projections following Championship Saturday. Oklahoma wins Bedlam to capture another conference crown.


Baker Mayfield boosted his Heisman Trophy resume in a 38-20 win over Oklahoma State on Saturday, as the Sooners quarterback passed for 288 yards and three touchdowns in a matchup that decided the Big 12 champion and essentially cemented the Sooners a trip to the Sugar Bowl.

Mayfield, who announced after the game that he would be returning to Norman in 2017, played most of the game without Biletnikoff Award finalist Dede Westbrook, who caught four passes for 111 yards before being knocked out of the game in the second quarter.

Meanwhile, Kansas State is slated for a Texas Bowl berth versus Texas A&M, while Baylor could be in line to play Boise State in the Cactus Bowl despite finishing the year on a six-game skid.
