Fiesta or Cotton Bowl for OU

The Cotton Bowl said today that it intends to extend an invitation to the loser of the Big 12 Championship game between Nebraska and OU on Saturday, so it looks like the Sooners are headed either to Glendale or to Dallas for a January 1 bowl game!

The only other outcome is the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville – the Gator Bowl can pick ahead of the Cotton Bowl once in the next four years if choosing a Big 12 team, and I can’t find any evidence that they’ve definitely decided not to exercise that option. They could take the runner-up in the Big 12 title game – but SoonerSports.com, the arm of the OU Athletic Department, pretty clearly believes the choices for both OU and Nebraska are the Fiesta Bowl or the Cotton Bowl. BOOMER SOONER!
