With one week left, SEC could qualify 12 teams for bowl games
Though the top tier of the SEC is occupied by Alabama alone, the rest of the conference has turned in an impressive 2016 season.
With one week left in the regular season, 10 SEC squads have already won at least six games, making them bowl eligible.
By the time the final whistles sound next weekend, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss could also be heading to postseason play:
