1. Championship Playoff in either the Rose or Sugar Bowl.
2. Orange Bowl (the SEC still puts it's best available team in the Sugar bowl; BUT, when the Sugar is one of the "playoff venues', we have cut a deal with the Orange Bowl.
3. Capital One Bowl
AFTER THAT, the SEC selects which teams go to the:
4. Outback Bowl
5. Music City Bowl
6. Gator Bowl
7. Liberty Bowl
8. Texas Bowl
9. Belk Bowl
AFTER THAT, the
10. Birmingham Bowl will have its choice of any available SEC team.
ALL of our bowl tie ins are against the B1G, Big 12 & ACC. That sucks. We should have at least ONE out of 10 bowls be a PAC 12 tie in...
I, for one, will not miss Shreveport.
Oh yeah, the Peach Bowl also picks a highly ranked 'at large" team. Who thinks they won't take the best SEC team they can get?
So, unless the SEC champion gets left out of the playoffs (which could only happen if our champ has 2 losses and all the other champs are undefeated or only have 1 loss); we have to have TWELVE bowl eligible teams for Bham to get an SEC team...
I am pretty sure that the Peach is higher in the pecking order than the Capital one - can anyone confirm that?
