The bowl picture is complete, and 9 SEC teams have accepted invitations to bowl games. Here's the recap.
Along with Mississippi State accepting a bid to the Gator Bowl to take on the Northwestern Wildcats today, eight other SEC teams have accepted invitations to bowl games today. Here's the full list of games that the SEC will take part in:
|Alabama||National Championship||Notre Dame||January 7, 7:30p.m.|
|Florida||Sugar Bowl||Louisville||January 2, 7p.m.|
|Georgia||Capitol One||Nebraska||January 1, 12p.m.|
|Texas A&M||Cotton||Oklahoma||January 4, 7p.m.|
|South Carolina||Outback||Michigan||January 1, 12p.m.|
|LSU||Chick Fil A||Clemson||December 31, 6:30p.m.|
|MSU||Gator||Northwestern||January 1, 11a.m.|
|Ole Miss||Compass||Pittsburgh||January 5, 12p.m.|
|Vanderbilt||Music City||NC State||December 31, 11a.m.|
Overall, things fell about as we all expected. The biggest loser in from the SEC is obviously Georgia, who was 5 yards shy of an SEC Championship and NC game berth, but instead are now playing in the Capitol One Bowl. Some may also say Vanderbilt got a bit of a disappointing draw as well, as they were selected to play in the Music City Bowl which is just down the street in Nashville for them. Outside of those two, most of the other SEC fanbases are probably happy with their selected destination.
