The bowl lineup is taking shape with only a few weeks left in the college football season. The TCU Horned Frogs upset over the Boise St. Broncos actually did not change much for TCU, because had Boise State gone to a BCS bowl game TCU would have been the first choice for the Mountain West and head to the Las Vegas Bowl. The Las Vegas Bowl is still the likely destination for TCU and they could see former Mountain West foe the Utah Utes.
The SMU Mustangs loss to the Navy Midshipmen on Saturday did not effect their bowl position since it was a non-conference game. Last week it was the Ticket City Bowl, but this week SMU looks to be heading to a much warmer climate and play in the Hawaii Bowl.
The Baylor Bears and Texas Longhorns will be battling it out for mid-level Big 12 bowl games and a lot can change from now until bowl announcements are made. Both schools are 3-3 in conference play and there are two more schools sitting at 3-4.

Las Vegas Bowl, Dec. 22, 2011
