Obviously, there's no bowl without a win over Missouri. But I pose this question to fans who understand the bowl-bid shakedown better than I do.
Even if ISU finishes at 6-6/4-4, the Big 12 a****id situation looks precarious. A&M beat Baylor so both teams are clearly in; neither can finish worse than 4-4 and have 7 wins, so an at large is worst-case
Tech is done with conference play at 3-5, so that team is no serious threat if it came to either-or for B12 position — but could easily finish 7-5 with non-conference weaklings left on the schedule.
We could hope KSU tanks vs. Colorado next week, to finish at 3-5.
And, alas, Texas is probably still alive, barely.
What is the best-case scenario for ISU, if the Cyclones can knock off the Tigers?
Think of how different things would be if ISU went 1-2 vs KSU/NU/CU, and not 0-3.
