Big 12 bowl projections: Week 1

We roll out weekly bowl projections here on our network, and we'll kick off the first official game week of 2012 with how I see the Big 12 bowls playing out at the end of the season.

Let's get started:

Here's the order in which the Big 12 bowls will select teams, and who I see being selected:

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma vs. BCS at-large

AT&T Cotton Bowl: West Virginia vs. SEC No. 3/4

Valero Alamo Bowl: Texas vs. Pac-12 No. 2

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl (formerly Insight Bowl): Kansas State vs. Big Ten No. 4/5

Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl: TCU vs. Pac-12 No. 3

Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas: Oklahoma State vs. Big Ten No. 6

New Era Pinstripe Bowl: Baylor vs. Big East No. 4

We'll update these as the season goes on, but this is where we'll start from.
