In the 2022 era, there is an audience that complains about too many bowl games. That there is the logic that too much football is just overwhelming. Imagine telling that to individual fan bases, players, coaching staff, and administrators. These bowl games provide 15 extra practices, revenue, help to recruit, and an awesome trip for players. It could be vital for a program to consistently make bowl games. I guarantee you no one in the Kansas fanbase is complaining about bowl games after missing them for over ten years now. So let’s take a look at the last time each Big 12 team missed a bowl game.
The Last Time Each Big 12 Team MISSED a Bowl Game
Iowa State: 2022
Kansas State: 2020
Oklahoma State: 2005
Texas Tech: 2020
West Virginia: 2022
It’s crazy to think the state of Oklahoma is what is keeping the Big 12 relevant in bowl game consistency. The Sooners and Cowboys are the only two that consistently making the postseason. Lately the rest of them are very hit and miss.
