Dates & Times For Big 12 Bowl Games Announced

The full bowl schedule has been released

NCAA Football: Alamo Bowl-Oklahoma State vs Colorado Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

If you are like me, you expect the Oklahoma State football team to make a bowl game for the 12th straight year this upcoming season. In that case, you may want to start marking your calendars.

The officials dates, times, and TV networks for all 35 (!!!) bowl games have been announced. That includes the games with Big 12 connections, the first of which kick off on Dec. 26th.

Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl

Tuesday, Dec. 26 (Time TBD) | Cotton Bowl Stadium, Dallas, TX | ESPN
Big 12 No. 7 vs. C-USA

Last season the Big 12 did not qualify enough teams to fill their spot in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. OSU has played in this game once, in the 2012 season, beating Purdue 58-14.

Motel 6 Cactus Bowl

Tuesday, Dec. 26 (Time TBD) | Chase Field, Phoenix, AZ | ESPN
Big 12 No. 6 vs. Pac-12

Last season, Baylor rebounded from a dismal end to their season with a 31-12 victory over Boise State. Oklahoma State has played in this bowl game twice; OSU beat Washington 30-22 in 2014 and beat Indiana in 2007 when the bowl was still called the Insight Bowl.

Autozone Liberty Bowl

Saturday, Dec. 30 @ 11:30 a.m. CT | Liberty Bowl, Memphis, TN | ABC
Big 12 No. 5 vs. SEC

TCU lost to Georgia in the 2016 Liberty Bowl. Oklahoma State has not played in this bowl yet.

Advocare V100 Texas Bowl

Wednesday, Dec. 27th @ 8:00 p.m. CT | NRG Stadium, Houston, TX | ESPN
Big 12 No. 4 vs. SEC

Last year, Kansas State upset Texas A&M in Houston 33-28. The Cowboys have not played in this bowl game.

Camping World Bowl

Thursday, Dec. 28th @ 4:15 p.m. CT | Camping World Stadium, Orlando, FL | ESPN
Big 12 No. 3 vs. ACC

Known as the Russell Athletic Bowl last season, West Virginia fell to Miami 31-14. Oklahoma State has never played in this bowl game.

Valero Alamo Bowl

Thursday, Dec. 28th @ 8:00 p.m. CT | Alamodome, San Antonio, TX | ESPN
Big 12 No. 2 vs. Pac-12

Last year Oklahoma State dominated the Pac-12 South Champion Colorado Buffaloes, winning 38-8. OSU also previously won the Alamo Bowl in 2010 beating Arizona 36-10.

Goodyear Cotton Bowl

Friday, Dec. 29th @ 7:30 p.m. CT | AT&T Stadium, Dallas, TX | ESPN
At Large vs At Large

Normally the Sugar Bowl would be the destination for the conference’s top team not in the playoff. However, since the Sugar Bowl will host one of the two semi-final games, it’s likely the Big 12 will send its best non-playoff team to the Cotton Bowl.

OSU has twice appeared in the Cotton bowl, losing to Ole Miss after the 2009 season and losing to Missouri after the 2013 seasons.

CFP Semi-Final

Rose Bowl
Monday, Jan. 1st @ 4:00 p.m. CT | Rose Bowl, Pasadena, CA | ESPN

AllState Sugar Bowl
Monday, Jan. 1st @ 7:45 p.m. CT | Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, LA | ESPN

If Oklahoma State can win the Big 12, and finish the season with no more than one loss, they could very likely head to the College Football Playoff for the first time. If that happens, here’s hoping for a trip to New Orleans.

Alright Cowboys fans, where do you expect to see OSU go bowling this season? Sound off in the comments section below!
