Bowl Presale Starts November 25

Just as the fog begins to clear on potential teams in the mix for the Valero Alamo Bowl, a special presale for the December 29 game will start on Wednesday, November 25.

To get access, please sign up for the presale here.

What Top 25 teams are most likely to play in San Antonio this year?

The Big 12 had a quiet week 11, but a Bedlam matchup between #14 Oklahoma State at #18 Oklahoma will hold major implications for the Big 12 Championship and eventually who will play in the Valero Alamo Bowl.

#17 Iowa State and #22 Texas are both back in action this week coming off a bye and will look to boost their championship chances as well.

The Pac-12 got a later start and have only competed two weeks of play.

#11 Oregon and #20 USC have maintained their spots in the Top 25 after two victories each, but the rest of the conference still remains unranked.

Who do you think it will be?

Remember, the Valero Alamo Bowl will feature the #1 selections from the Pac-12 and Big 12 conferences after the College Football Playoff selections.

This year, the Rose and Sugar bowls are hosting the Semifinal meaning the Pac-12 and Big 12 Champions will go to those bowls only if they finish in the Top 4 of the final CFP poll. If not, they will either go to the Cotton, Peach or Fiesta Bowls.

  • 2014: #14 UCLA 40 vs. #11 Kansas State 35
  • 2015: #11 TCU 47 vs. #15 Oregon 31 (3OT)
  • 2016: #12 Oklahoma State 38 vs. #10 Colorado 8
