Programs around the nation are closing in on the 2013 postseason, so best- and worst-case scenarios are shaping up for members of the Big 12 Conference.
Currently, there are five teams that have qualified by winning six games and three more with an opportunity to reach the mandated victory plateau, while Kansas and Iowa State have been eliminated from postseason play.
This season, the Big 12 has seven official tie-ins in addition to the conference's automatic bid to the Fiesta Bowl. Unfortunately, however, the Big 12 is a loss away, by either West Virginia or TCU, from not filling all available slots.
But one school has an outside chance to make the nation's most important game, so the final four weeks of the 2013-14 campaign will determine which teams head where during the bowl season.
