If Kansas State reaches a bowl game, the Texas Bowl could be its destination

The Kansas State football team hasn’t played in front of a bowl representative this season, but that will soon change.

With the Wildcats at 4-4 after back-to-back blowout victories, they look more like a team that will qualify for the postseason than a team that might reach bowl eligibility.

It’s still early, of course. With four games remaining they could finish anywhere from 8-4 to 4-8. They could play in a nice postseason game. They might not make the postseason at all.

But it’s never too early to examine where K-State might end up if it finishes with six or more victories. So let’s give it a whirl.

At this point, there are three main possibilities. The Texas Bowl looks like the early favorite. The Holiday Bowl could become an option if K-State finishes strong. The Pinstripe Bowl is a long shot.

I suppose the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl is also a slight possibility, but K-State would need to finish 8-4 and receive help to move up that high. (more)
