Big 12 Bowl Projections – Week 9


Big 12 bowl projections for Week 9. Kansas State enters the postseason fray after its win over Texas in the Little Apple.


Bill Snyder has his Kansas State team primed for the postseason once again, as the Wildcats may have put the final nail in the coffin of the Charlie Strong era at Texas.

The Wildcats are slated for the Las Vegas Bowl as a fill-in for the Pac-12’s tie-in, and surprising Hawaii could be the opponent out of the Mountain West.

Meanwhile, West Virginia remains unbeaten and continues its postseason ascent, although there are plenty of tough games remaining for the Mountaineers.
