Bowl Projections 2011: K State Should Be In High Cotton, Missouri Could Play In NYC

The Wildcats' Resurgence Is Projected To Bring Them To Dallas On January 6 To Face The SEC In Cowboys Stadium.

Provided the current BCS projections hold true above them, Kansas State is likely headed to the Cotton Bowl for the first time in over a decade. Both ESPN and Sports Illustrated have the Wildcats projected to play in Jerryworld January 6, against either Georgia or Arkansas from the SEC. 

With Oklahoma State still alive in the national title picture and at worst a contender for the Big 12's automatic berth, Oklahoma - the only other team to beat K State so far this year - is projected to play Washington in the Alamo, positioning the Cats for Dallas. The AT&T Cotton Bowl has the first selection after the BCS, so K State would leapfrog a Sooners team that beat them in Manhattan.

Missouri has a cloudier future - the 7-5 Tigers could end up in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl in New York City (December 30) or in the Meineke Car Care Texas Bowl in Houston on New Year's Eve. It's likely that the Texas Bowl would elect for 6-6 Texas A&M, making NYC the Tigers' likely desination.
