The New Year’s Day bowl slate kicked off with two SEC-Big Ten battles in the Citrus Bowl (Alabama vs. Michigan) and Outback Bowl (Auburn vs. Minnesota). Both SEC teams were favored by at least 7 points (depending on your preferred sportsbook). The B1G underdogs, however, are both leading at the halftime break.

Minnesota is up 24-17 on Auburn while Michigan leads Alabama 16-14.

Big Ten fans and SEC haters are loving it on social media:
