Week nine has now come and gone, and things are becoming a little clearer in the SEC, but a monster game with Alabama and LSU remains this weekend.
BCS National Championship Game: Alabama
All-State Sugar Bowl: Georgia
Capital One Bowl: Florida
Outback Bowl: LSU
AT&T Cotton Bowl: Texas A&M
Chick-fil-A Bowl: South Carolina
Gator Bowl: Mississippi State
Music City Bowl: Ole Miss
Liberty Bowl: Tennessee
BBVA Compass Bowl: Vanderbilt
Independence Bowl: Missouri
Either Georgia or Florida could be picked to go to the Sugar Bowl as an at large if Alabama still plays for the national championship. If Georgia loses and Florida wins out, the Gators could wind up in the Sugar Bowl. However, if Florida loses again to Florida State, Georgia could have a shot at the at large for the Sugar Bowl. Again, this is all dependent on whether Alabama plays for it all. It certainly looks like that.
Ole Miss and Vanderbilt look like they will both go bowling and get the coveted six-win mark. While both programs are in different situations, this is still an equally impressive mark.
Lastly, I doubt Missouri makes it to a bowl game, but of the other teams on the cusp, you have to fill them out for the SEC to make their automatic bowl tie-ins. Again, I doubt they will make a bowl. We’ll find out.
