LATEST BOWL PROJECTIONS: CHRISTMAS IN NEW YORK?
3:40 P.M., WEDNESDAY, NOV. 28, 2012

Only one more week remains in the college football regular season and the 6-5 Baylor Bears will be bowling for the third consecutive season. Now, it's just a matter of when and where. There's still no consensus about where Baylor will be playing, but for now, majority rules: experts think Baylor will be headed to Houston (Meineke Car Care), New York (Pinstripe) or Dallas (Heart of Dallas).

Baylor Bear Foundation members and season ticketholders will be able to order tickets on-line at www.BaylorBears.com/tickets on Sunday evening after selections are announced, and all orders must be placed by Noon on Wednesday, Dec. 5. Remaining tickets, if any, in the Baylor allotment will go on-sale to the general public on Dec. 6. All tickets ordered through Baylor will be shipped by Dec. 14.

Fans are reminded that the stadium sections assigned to Baylor Athletics are made by the bowl, and all orders will be seated based on the Bear Foundation's Priority Points system. It is critical that Baylor fans purchase bowl game tickets from our athletics ticket office, as fans' institutional ticket purchases can impact our future bowl opportunities. Baylor Nation has been outstanding in its support of the Bears' at the 2010 Texas Bowl and the 2011 Valero Alamo Bowl, and the 2012 Bears are on track for another record-breaking year at the Floyd Casey Stadium box office.

Here's a look at the latest bowl projections:

Every week during the 2012 football season, "This is Bear Country" Blog will take a look at Baylor's opposition that week and what fans can expect to see, as well as other fun facts. This week's 'Scouting the Opponent' focuses on Baylor's opponent on Saturday, TCU:

103rd HOMECOMING
When the Jayhawks and Bears compete in Waco on Saturday, it will mark the 103rd homecoming celebration in Baylor history. Saturday will also mark the 12th meeting between Kansas and Baylor. Baylor leads the series, seven games to four.

RED MEANS GO
The Jayhawk defense is holding its opponents to just 69% on their trips to the red zone. Kansas' defense has allowed its opponents to enter the red zone on 36 drives, but have given up just 20 touchdowns and five field goals. Kansas ranks 13th nationally in red zone defense. The Jayhawks' red zone defense ranks fi rst in the Big 12.

KEEPING IT CLEAN
Kansas ranks third nationally in penalty yards per game, being flagged for an average of 28.25 yards per game, which is tops in the Big 12. It also ranks third nationally in penalties per outing with 3.63 flags thrown per game against KU, which ranks tied for first in the Big 12 with league leader Kansas State.

THREE-HEADED MONSTER
Kansas is one of four schools in the NCAA that has had three different running backs eclipse the 100-yard rushing mark in a game this season. Jayhawk HB James Sims has four 100-yard games, HB Tony Pierson has two 100-yard games, while fellow HB Taylor Cox has one 100-yard rushing game to his credit this season. California, Tulsa and Middle Tennessee are the other three schools to have three running backs hit the century mark.

NEW FACES ON THE FIELD
Kansas has had 21 players see game action for the first time in a Jayhawk uniform in 2012. Nine offensive players, eight defensive players and four specialists have made their way on to Kivisto Field first time in their KU careers. In addition, seventeen Jayhawk players have picked up their first career start at KU in 2012.
