BCS Bowl Projections 2012: Kansas State vs. Oregon in Fiesta Bowl

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Wildcats are likely headed to the Fiesta Bowl if they can get past the Texas Longhorns this Saturday.

It's another Sunday during the college football season which means a slew of BCS Bowl Projections are coming out before tonight's official reveal of another BCS standings. The Kansas State Wildcats have a familiar destination this week against a foe that was once ranked alongside them in the standings: against Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl.

The Wildcats lost any chance at the national championship most likely with their loss to Baylor, but they can still wrap up the Big 12 title and a chance at a major BCS bowl win against a top flight team that will earn significant attention if they can beat the Ducks.

CBS Sports writes, "If Kansas State beats Texas at home next week, the Wildcats will win the Big 12 and land here. Oregon comes up short in the Pac-12, but lands here."

Collin Klein and company have to defeat Texas next week, and that game will not come easily. The Longhorns have endured another disappointing season but they'll definitely look to salvage that against the best team in the conference.

As for the national championship game, it's an easy prediction of Alabama vs. Notre Dame.
