For the sixth consecutive year the Valero Alamo Bowl will feature the #1 selection from the Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences after the College Football Playoff selections.
Those selection rights have delivered:
- Five straight Top 25 match ups and four Top 15 match ups
- Participating teams that average a #14 ranking
- A Valero Alamo Bowl Champion that averages 11 wins and a #9 ranking
So which teams will be playing in San Antonio on New Year’s Eve?
While the final CFP Poll doesn’t come out until Selection Sunday on December 8, the first 2019 Coaches Poll is out and three Big 12 teams (#5 Oklahoma, #9 Texas and #24 Iowa State) and five Pac-12 teams (#12 Washington, #13 Oregon, #15 Utah, #21 Washington State and #23 Stanford) are in the Top 25.
Even though the first games have yet to kickoff, that hasn’t stopped media outlets from casting their bowl predictions for the 2019 Valero Alamo Bowl.
