Remember when the critics said the SEC was having a down year because of shaky quarterback play?

Well, we see your spotty quarterback play and raise you with some of the best running backs and defensive fronts that college football has to offer.

The result?

The SEC set a college football record with eight bowl wins in the same season.

In total, the league was 8-2, and has an extra game coming when Alabama takes on Clemson in the College Football Playoff championship game on Jan. 11.

Here is a neat graphic from the SEC Network that shows how the bowl season progressed for the league:

Shout out to LSU, Auburn, Mississippi State, Alabama, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Georgia and Arkansas for doing work.

Shame on Florida and Texas A&M for keeping us from a perfect 10-0 record. (Just kidding, guys.)
