NCAA Bowl Games Schedule 2014-2015: Big 12 loses $6 million

While the Ohio State rejoices for being included in the College Football Playoff, the Big 12 Conference accepts the fact that neither Baylor nor TCU was not part of the equation.

The Big 12 Conference loses $6 million for not having a team in the college football playoff, according to ESPN. The only conference which is looking out form the Power Five conferences.

“My opinion, since people are asking? I think the committee needs to be a little more regionalized with people that are associated with the south part of the United States,” Baylor coach Art Briles, expressing his fears, said. “I’ll say that. I’m not sure if there’s a connection on there that is that familiar with the Big 12 Conference. To me, that’s an issue.”

The Baylor Bears ended up at No. 5 in the final College Football Playoff rankings while Big 12 rivals TCU Horned Frogs ranked No. 5. The selection committee last week placed TCU at No. 3 and Baylor at No. 6. To the surprise of the Big 12 Conference, Baylor and TCU were both beaten by Ohio State for the last spot. According to many observers, the reason the selection committee picked Ohio State instead of a representative from the Big 12 was because of the Buckeyes 59-0 demolition over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game. Moreover, the fact that there’s no Big 12 Conference title game might be one of the reasons.

Instead, TCU faces No. 9 Ole Miss in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on December 31, at the Georgia Dome, Atlanta. Baylor will meet No. 8 Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl on January 1, 2015 at the AT&T Stadium, Arlington Texas.
