So in Year One of this new age, who from the SEC can expect to go bowling? Bill Bender of The Sporting News has made his projections this morning. And while we don't agree with all his selections, it's June and I do have an appointment for an oil change. So here's how Bender sees things shaking out for your favorite league's teams...
AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl (Houston, TX) -- Missouri vs Kansas State
Belk Bowl (Charlotte, NC) -- Ole Miss vs North Carolina
Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl (Nashville, TN) -- Texas A&M vs Louisville
Duck Commander Independence Bowl (Shreveport, LA) -- Mississippi State vs Syracuse
AutoZone Liberty Bowl (Memphis, TN) -- Florida vs TCU
Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl (Jacksonville, FL) -- South Carolina vs Miami (FL)
Outback Bowl (Tampa, FL) -- Georgia vs Wisconsin
Birmingham Bowl (Birmingham, AL) -- Tennessee vs East Carolina
Capital One Bowl (Orlando, FL) -- LSU vs Nebraska
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl (Atlanta, GA) -- Auburn vs Central Florida
Rose Bowl (Pasadena, CA), Playoff Semifinal -- Alabama vs Oklahoma
Eleven SEC teams going bowling this season? We suspect there will be only ten, but we'll make our own official predictions in the days to come.
