With their 52-45 overtime victory, Baylor not only secured Bowl eligibility yesterday, they retained control of the jiMpossible-sarcasMike trophy.
Trophy games have not produced much defense this season. The average score has been 49.25 - 31.25. The Bears host Oklahoma State next week.
Looking ahead the Big-12 Bowl tie-ins look something like this: (with Jerry Palm's predictions)
Champ - Fiesta (Kansas St)
2nd - BCS at-large (Oklahoma) not a guaranteed tie-in but likely
3rd - Cotton (Texas)
4th - Alamo (TCU)
5th - Buffalo Wild Wings (Oklahoma St)
6th - Holiday (Texas Tech)
7th - Meinecke Car Care (Baylor)
8th - Pinstripe (West Virginia)
9th - Heart of Dallas (Iowa State) this is not a Big12 tie-in but a predicted filled with a bowl eligible team.
I would guess from that list that Pal is predicting an Oklahoma State victory over Baylor.
