Looking ahead: The Oklahoman's staff predictions for OU's bowl future

The Oklahoman’s staff predictions for Oklahoma’s bowl destination:

Berry Tramel: Holiday Bowl vs. Oregon

The rivalry rides again!

John Rohde: Cotton Bowl vs. LSU

Despite losing to Texas, look for OU to still make a return trip to Jerry World this season. Alas, it will be for an appearance in the Cotton Bowl, which has a new home. Just for giggles, let’s have the Sooners facing LSU and coach Les Miles. Anyone sick of "Tiger Bait" yet?

Jenni Carlson: Alamo Bowl vs. Iowa

It might be hard to get the Sooner Nation fired up about a non-BCS bowl, but at least there would be some fun storylines with Bob Stoops facing his alma mater.

John Helsley: Alamo Bowl vs. Michigan State

The Sooners haven’t been bowling in San Antonio, yet, and they’d be No. 1 on the watch list. Landry Jones vs. Keith Nichol in a battle of former OU backups.

David Ubben: Cotton Bowl vs. LSU

The Cotton Bowl knows OU fans will travel. With the way the North is shaping up, it looks like all OU will have to compete with is OSU.
