Wendell Barnhouse is a nationally-known and respected columnist who has spent over 20 years covering collegiate athletics. He has reported from 24 Final Fours and more than three dozen bowl games and has written about the Big 12 and its schools since the conference's beginning. Barnhouse will be updating the Big 12 Insider on happenings and behind-the-scenes information about the conference.

The college football bowl schedule has been set for the upcoming season. Listed below are the bowl games with which the Big 12 has agreements.

On Dec. 29, the Big 12 will be featured in a triple header starting with the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, followed by the Valero Alamo Bowl and finishing with the Valley of the Sun Bowl (formerly Insight Bowl).

The Discover BCS National Championship game will be at 7:30 p.m. CST on Jan. 7 in Miami. That game pits the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the BCS standings. If the Big 12 champion isn't ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the BCS, it will play in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

The opponents listed could change if those conferences don't have enough bowl eligible teams to fulfill obligations.
