Big 12 bowl projections: Week 14

This could get a little hairy down the stretch. Rest of the Big 12? You need to be cheering pretty hard for Oklahoma. If the Sooners lose to TCU, they'll likely fall out of the BCS, and push the Big 12 down a peg in the bowl pecking order along the way. It'll also mean that the Big 12 may have to usurp another conference's bowl tie with nine bowl-eligible teams and just eight bowl tie-ins. Anyway, we'll see how it shakes out. Here's how I project the Big 12 bowl games this week:

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl: Kansas State vs. BCS at-large

Allstate Sugar Bowl: Oklahoma vs. BCS at-large

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heart of Dallas Bowl: Iowa State vs. Big Ten No. 7
