Oklahoma State football: Alamo, Buffalo Wild Wings, Holiday bowls on the table for Cowboys

BY GINA MIZELL, Staff Writer, gmizell@opubco.com Published: December 1, 2012

Following its 41-34 loss at Baylor to close out the regular season, Oklahoma State's bowl possibilities have shifted. The official announcement of where the Cowboys will play their postseason football will come Sunday, but here's a look at the most likely destinations:

ALAMO BOWL

Dec. 29 in San Antonio

With Kansas State and Oklahoma both expected to be BCS-bound, this is the natural landing spot for the Big 12's fourth-place team. But will the Alamo instead opt to select TCU, one of the conference's new teams and a fan base that would be excited to travel to San Antonio? This bowl would feature a Pac-12 opponent, most likely UCLA or Oregon State.

BUFFALO WILD WINGS BOWL

Dec. 29 in Tempe, Ariz.

If TCU is the Alamo's pick, the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl is next in line. OSU and Texas Tech are both reportedly on the bowl's radar, though the Cowboys played in the desert — albeit in the Fiesta Bowl — last season. This bowl would feature a Big Ten opponent, most likely Michigan State.

HOLIDAY BOWL

Dec. 27 in San Diego

It's hard to imagine the Cowboys falling any farther than this. OSU last played in San Diego in 2008. This bowl would feature a Pac-12 team, most likely Oregon State or UCLA.
