Big 12 bowl projections: Week 7

Here's how I slot the Big 12 bowl picture after six weeks of football. It's a tight race at the top and bottom, but that final spot between will be a major battle. Could TCU eventually fall off, too? For now, I'll give the Big 12 nine bowl teams because nine teams are playing bowl-quality football. As the math shakes out later in the season, we'll see just how possible that really is.

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl: West Virginia vs. BCS at-large

Allstate Sugar Bowl: Kansas State vs. BCS at-large

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

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

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl: Baylor vs. Big Ten No. 4/5

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

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

New Era Pinstripe Bowl: Iowa State vs. Big East No. 4
