Bowl Projections: Cal To The Holiday, To Face Texas, Iowa State Or Missouri

With Furd heading to the Fiesta and UW going to the Alamo, that means Cal is in line for their third trip to the Holiday Bowl in eight years. The question is who will they face?

Right now it seems to all depend on which Big 12 teams go where in the earlier polls. The Holiday Bowl has the fifth selection of all the Big 12 bowls. If both Oklahoma State and Kansas State make it to the BCS (which is possible if TCU doesn't make it into the top 16), then the Cotton Bowl (second selection behind the Fiesta) would take either Baylor or Oklahoma. The Alamo would take the other team. The Insight Bowl would then be left with a choice of the Texas Longhorns, the Missouri Tigers, the Iowa St. Cyclones or the Texas A&M Aggies. It'd be a no-brainer for the Insight to pick up the Longhorns, leaving us with probably a choice of the remaining three teams. I'd guess Missouri or Iowa State are the likeliest opponents considering the way A&M stumbled and bumbled to the finish.

If TCU takes Kansas State's spot in the BCS? Then everyone drops a spot, and Cal likely gets their dream rematch with Texas.

Here's what everyone is projecting:
