That certainly appears to make the most sense based on the pecking order for the Texas Bowl and the desire to anchor it with a Texas team.
Baylor is going to a bowl game for the first time since 1994, when the Bears played in the Alamo Bowl. The bowl has a tie-in with the Big 12 and Big 10 and the projections on ESPN.com and elsewhere have Baylor facing Illinois.
The Texas Bowl, played in Houston, will announce its matchup on Sunday night. But I've got to think Baylor fans would gladly make the short drive to Houston to see the Bears in a bowl game for the first time post Southwest Conference.
