Ranking the SEC bowls, best to worst
By ESPN.com staff
My colleague at ESPN.com, Mark Schlabach, has taken on the task of ranking every bowl game from best to worst.
No big surprise, but first on his list was the Citi BCS National Championship Game matchup between Alabama and Texas.
After that, it gets interesting. Here's how he ranked the other nine bowl games that have SEC teams playing in them. There are 34 bowl games in all:
4. Allstate Sugar Bowl: Florida vs. Cincinnati
5. Capital One Bowl: LSU vs. Penn State
9. Chick-fil-A Bowl: Tennessee vs. Virginia Tech
10. AT&T Cotton Bowl: Ole Miss vs. Oklahoma State
20. Outback Bowl: Auburn vs. Northwestern
21. AutoZone Liberty Bowl: Arkansas vs. East Carolina
22. Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl: Kentucky vs. Clemson
23. Papajohns.com Bowl: South Carolina vs. Connecticut
26. Advocare V100 Independence Bowl: Georgia vs. Texas A&M
