Nine of Texas’ 12 FBS programs received bowl invites after the conclusion of the 2022 regular season. TCU was the headliner after the Horned Frogs survived a loss in the Big 12 title game to Kansas State to finish third in the College Football Playoff ranking to earn a trip to the Fiesta Bowl and a date with Michigan in the national semifinals. 

Each of the four in-state Big 12 schools are going bowling, as are the two programs – SMU and Houston – playing in the AAC. And three of the four C-USA teams received an invite to the postseason. The only Lone Star State teams to miss a bowl were Texas A&M, UTEP, and Texas State.
