My best case scenario would be against Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl.

What sense is there in having the nation's 8th ranked team play a team that isn't in the top 20 in any poll? The system is broken when similarly ranked teams are not being paired.

We don't have any coaches with ties in Texas as far as I know. There is a lot of good recruiting territory a lot closer than Texas, and realistically we aren't the kind of school that can show up anywhere in the country and recruit on our name. Would cost a lot of money for not a lot of return.

Checked Out?? That Iowa team was nasty. Brandon Myers, Bradley Fletcher, Pat Angerer all starters in the NFL now. Not to mention Ricky Stanzi at QB to go along with Shonn Greene.

It might be an overstatement to say they are a one-trick pony on offense... they average >204 ypg through the air and 283 on the ground, albeit (according to strength of schedule) against inferior competition.
They are 8th in rushing, 89th in passing. Which do you think they favor?

Without a doubt the best opponent we can play is our past and the ghosts it holds. These can be confronted, and buried only on the national stage. The Cotton Bowl is that stage. We turn into a national,power by traveling out of our past and into our future.

Or we can remain the perpetual runner up in the east, and play in the crapital one bowl.

That was the same game where Spurrier was mad at Garcia, for playing video games the night before the bowl(instead of watching film)

Good discussion, but with NIU losing tonight the belief on Twitter is that if Baylor and Oklahoma State win tomorrow both will go to BCS bowls. If we go to the Cotton, it will most likely be against Oklahoma or Texas.

Capital One opponent seems to be pretty obvious.

Right now it's either Cotton or Capital One. Not going to the Outback is about as close to 100% guaranteed as can possibly be.

Michigan State will probably still go to the Rose Bowl even if they lose tomorrow.

"And the REAL winner tonight????........The All State Sugar Bowl!!! Baylor vs SEC Champ as possibility."

-Kirk Herbstreit twitter

So it looks like:

Capital One vs Wisconsin

Cotton vs Texas/Oklahoma

(Im assuming BU and Ok St win. Both look likely)

Maybe I am just being obstinate, but I just don't see it especially now that NIU just lost. We are now competing with LSU, Missouri and Texas A&M for a slot in the Cotton and the Capital One.

If the Cotton picks Texas you can forget about it because they would have to pass up a Texas A&M v Texas match up, which in my mind they would not do regardless of wins and losses because that would be an easy sellout.

The Capital One is a toss up unless Auburn loses and then were definitely in the Outback or Chick-fil-A.

Idk.. Last year, Texas let the Cotton Bowl know, they absolutely did not want to be matched up with A&M... I think this is still the case.. A lot of hatred between the 2 schools right now...

NIU losing has nothing to do with out bowl destination.

Texas and Texas A&M do not want to play each other.

If Auburn loses we're going to the Cotton.

It's becoming more apparent that there is a very very slim chance we go to the Outback.
