Big 12 bowl projections: Week 12

Well, it looks like this is it for the Big 12. After West Virginia lost to Kansas and TCU lost to Kansas State, both schools are 4-7 on the season and ineligible to go bowling. So that settles it. The conference will send six teams to bowl games this winter, one season after nine Big 12 teams earned that honor.
