Big 12 picture clearing up at midway point

(Continued)

Which teams are headed to which bowl games?

Kansas State, Texas and Texas Tech are already bowl eligible and another five teams are sitting on five wins, hoping to qualify for the postseason this week — Iowa State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU and West Virginia.

It’s all but impossible at this point to project who will end up where among the league’s six bowl partners, with the potential for two to make the BCS.

“We’re trying to get one more ballgame so that we can get the extra practices and get to a bowl game,” TCU’s Gary Patterson said. “And if you can get to six, then you’re going to try to get to seven. If you get to seven, then you try to get to eight.”

Who’s lagging behind?

Kansas dropped its 16th straight conference game Saturday, falling just short when Texas scored with 12 seconds left for a 21-17 win. But the Jayhawks (1-7, 0-5) can climb out of the cellar this week at winless Baylor (3-4, 0-4), which has reverted to its pre-Robert Griffin III ways.

“There’s definitely things you can look at and say you’re getting better here, you’re getting better here, you’re getting better here. But still at the end of the day, it’s still about winning,” Weis said. “Regardless of whether you played tough, played close,

“Are there silver linings? Yes, there are. But it still comes down to you’ve lost 100 in a row in the Big 12, at home and on the road, and you need to beat somebody so you can start moving that trend in a different direction.”
