Big 12 bowl projections: Week 8

Here's how I see the Big 12 bowl picture shaking out by season's end.

OSU slides into the title spot and controls its own fate. For now, I'll hang on to the Sooners as a second BCS spot for the Big 12. OU only dropped to No. 9 in the BCS standings, and if they keep winning and beating teams like Texas A&M and Kansas State, a second loss to Oklahoma State wouldn't drop them too far. It'll be close, but the Sooners strong history should work in their favor and slide them into the BCS as an at-large team.
