US PRESSWIRE

The final bowl projections are in from SB Nation's Jason Kirk, and four teams from the region are slated for bowl games.

The most high-profile matchup in the group is Texas taking on Georgia in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 4. Both teams suffered losses in conference championship games on Saturday, Texas falling to Kansas State and Georgia losing a heartbreaker to Alabama

The TCU Horned Frogs are slated to take on the UCLA Bruins, another conference championship game loser, in the Holiday Bowl, played Dec. 27 in San Diego.

The projections see the Baylor Bears headed to Houston to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Dec. 28 in the Meineke Bowl. The Bears ended their season on a three-game winning streak, including a stunning 54-24 upset of then-No. 1 Kansas State on Nov. 17.

SMU gets to travel somewhere a bit more exotic, taking on Fresno State in the Hawaii Bowl, played on Christmas Eve in Honolulu.

Bowl game announcements will officially be made on Sunday evening.
