Some of you were concerned about the SEC's showing in the bowl games but as it turns out, they did pretty well.
The only two conferences with better winning percentages were the WAC (2-0) and C-USA (4-1). It should be noted that none of those teams played ranked opponents in their individual bowls.
The SEC had the third-highest winning percentage with 6 victories out of 9 games. Clemson beating LSU was not a huge shock and actually a pretty good game. MSU losing to an undervalued Northwestern was not so surprising either. Florida's faceplant against Louisville is the only real embarrassment for the league.
The Big Ten on the other hand - OUCH! Two wins in 7 bowl games.
The Big 12 went 4-5 including blowout losses by their two best teams, K-State and Oklahoma.
The Pac-12 fared slightly better at 4-4 but preseason #1 Southern Cal's humiliating loss to 7-loss Georgia Tech has got to sting.
So all in all, not a bad post-season for the SEC.
