So with the news of the Big 12-SEC bowl game merger, the thought came to me. We will likely never see the SEC champion. We probably won't see the Big 12 champion. When you are talking about taking the top four teams in college football into the playoff system, most years, those teams will be involved. Last year, 2 SEC teams would have been involved. Oklahoma State probably would have made the top four too, along with Stanford. So the new big bowl game would have featured... Arkansas vs. Kansas State? Funny thing is... we got that matchup. They called it the Cotton Bowl.
So you see my angle for Texas vs. Texas A&M here. It could happen.
