BCS Standings 2011: Bowl Outlook for Texas

The 2011 college football season has reached the halfway mark, and everyone's talking about bowl game scenarios. There are quite a few postseason possibilities for No. 24 Texas this year, as they look bowl-bound after last year's 5-7 finish.  

The Longhorns have managed a somewhat expected 4-2 record by this stage. Although their back-to-back losses were to Top-10 teams, they were both blowouts. So, at this point, a trip to a BCS bowl is a long shot—if not outright impossible. 

To add to this, the 'Horns have a rocky road ahead, seeing as how their schedule features either tough, unpredictable or just flat out better opponents. While the likes of Texas A&M and Kansas State fall in the 'better' category, Baylor and Missouri are in the 'tough' bracket. And, Texas Tech and Kansas might look like gimmes, but these teams could stun a Texas team low on confidence.

Therefore, the Longhorns need to count their losses, move on and ensure they don't falter in the next two home games. Thereafter, they'll have to outperform some really good teams to make sure they end up in one of the better bowl games. 

With that in mind, here's some bowl game scenarios for the Texas Longhorns.
