Yahoo! Sports projects 11 SEC teams to go bowling after Week 1
With the SEC’s Week 1 in the books, outlets across the country are reconfiguring their bowl projections.
Most projections have two SEC teams — Alabama and Georgia — playing in the College Football Playoff, with Auburn somewhere in the top six. LSU is also one of college football’s hottest teams right now after upsetting No. 8 Miami.
Yahoo! Sports is the latest outlet to unveil their latest projections, but only Alabama is projected to make the playoff. Auburn and Georgia are projected to make New Years Six games.

The best matchup of these bowl games? Try Auburn and West Virginia. WVU’s offense is dirty with QB Will Grier, but Auburn’s front seven could be the difference. The Tigers can also play a track meet game, too. Sign me up for this one.
