Big 12 officials confirmed their bowl lineup for the 2014-19 seasons today, although final agreements have yet to be signed. Under the new arrangement, the champion will go to the Sugar Bowl unless it qualifies to be part of the College Football Playoff. The next-highest bowl behind the Sugar in the league pecking order will be the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.
The league’s remaining postseason tie-ins will include the Russell Athletic Bowl (Orlando, Fla.), Liberty Bowl (Memphis, Tenn.), Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl (Tempe, Ariz.), Meineke Car Care Bowl (Houston) and Heart of Dallas Bowl at the Cotton Bowl.
