PowerMizzou: An early look at possible bowl scenarios
Missouri will be favored in its final four games. That is no guarantee they will win them. If they do win out, the worst-case scenario is that the Tigers are 11-and-1, but left out of the Big XII title game. A BCS at-large selection isn't out of the question. However, the conference is not at all guaranteed to get two teams into the BCS this season. The next pick goes to the Cotton Bowl. The Tigers would be in contention for that, but the title game loser (could be Oklahoma, Nebraska, Oklahoma State or Baylor) would as well, along with the possibility of a ten-win Oklahoma State team.
If the Cotton were to pass on the Tigers, a pretty safe bet would seem to be a return to the Alamo Bowl, which has moved up in the pecking order. That game would match the Big 12's third selection against a PAC-10 team, which most are projecting to be Stanford at this time.
In an absolute worst case scenario, where the Alamo Bowl takes a South team it believes would sell more tickets, the Tigers could slide to the Insight, which snubbed them last year, against a Big Ten team.
