Bowl projections 2012: Stanford to Alamo or Las Vegas Bowl

Ezra Shaw

The Stanford Cardinal can win out and go to the Rose Bowl, but will probably end up elsewhere if they lose to the Oregon Ducks.

The Stanford Cardinal still have their Rose Bowl destiny in their hands. If they can run the table, beat Oregon, UCLA and whoever represents the Pac-12 South in the conference title game, they will earn a trip to Pasadena. However, a loss or two could set them back in their bowl projections.

Here are the latest bowl projections from ESPN's Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards. Schlabach has Stanford facing the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the 2012 Alamo Bowl in a rematch of their entertaining Fiesta Bowl third place game tango last year. Edwards has Stanford a few rungs lower, with the Cardinal spending their time in Las Vegas to face the Boise St. Broncos.

Stanford probably has to at least split their final two games to end up in either of those positions, and their poor bowl attendance could send them stumbling down the bowl ladder. The Cardinal probably want to avoid all this speculation by winning out, going to the Rose Bowl instead.
