Bowl projections: Where will Big 12, Texas A&M land for bowl season?

Local Sports

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Yes, it is way too early to be planning for a college football bowl season, but here we are. It’s technically week 9 in college football even though most teams have only played five games — or in the Big Ten’s case — one game.

Currently, there are 37 bowl games scheduled, giving 74 teams the opportunity to play an extra game of varying importance at the end of the 2020 season.

Keep in mind it’s a small sample size, but there’s at least a decent amount of data out there to put out some projections on where the Big 12 teams plus Texas A&M may travel for bowl season. We do know one thing — Texas and Texas A&M will not be playing each other in a bowl game. Neither the schools, nor the conferences will let that rematch happen in a meaningless postseason, exhibition game.

Here are the projections after week 8 of the season.
