Our bowl is 12th. Ahead of us: The Vegas Bowl, among others.
12. Alamo Bowl: 11 Utah vs. Texas
Date: Dec. 31, 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN
Watch it because … this might be the best Upset Special of the bowl season. While the Utes are the better team and Texas’s staff is amid an overhaul, will Utah really be up for this game? The Utes were a win away from the playoff before the loss in the Pac-12 title game.
Early line : Utah -6.5
Weird fact : The Big 12 has won three of the last four matchups in this one.
