The SEC is, as always, very well represented in this year's bowl games. 11 teams from the conference made bowls this year, making it hard to keep track of it all, so to make things a bit easier, here is a comprehensive list of all of the conference's bowl games.
11. Auburn: Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl
A disappointing end to a tough season, JaTarvious Whitlow and the Tigers will face off against a Purdue team that already pulled one of the year's biggest upsets by thwomping Ohio State. Rondale Moore and the Purdue offense could run roughshod over the SEC's biggest disappointment.
And Gus Malzahn's head could roll.
Schedule: 1:30 PM on Dec. 28
10. Georgia: Allstate Sugar Bowl
After just narrowly missing the college football playoff, the Georgia Bulldogs will exact their revenge against the Texas Longhorns in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. Although the Bulldogs were objectively one of the best four teams in the country this year, tough scheduling gifted them a less than stellar record. This bowl season will give them an opportunity to show their true selves.
Schedule: 8:45 pm on Jan. 1.
9. LSU: PlayStation Fiesta Bowl
This season has been nothing new for LSU, as they have steamrolled their way to a No. 11 ranking and will be playing in this year's Fiesta Bowl. What is different, however, is their competition, as UCF may pose a unique threat to the Tigers. Will LSU undergo the same fate as Auburn last year, losing to a non-Power Five team? I guess we will just have to see.
Schedule: 1:00 pm on Jan. 1.
8. Kentucky: VRBO Citrus Bowl
Despite typically being a basketball school, the University of Kentucky Wildcats shocked college football fans this season by showcasing themselves as one of the best teams in the country. In their final game of the season, they will play a very talented Penn State team in what can be looked at as a good opportunity for the Wildcats to secure their status as a top tier program.
Schedule: 1:00 pm on Jan. 1.
7. Mississippi State: Outback Bowl
The Mississippi State Bulldogs should have a sneaky-intriguing matchup against the unranked Iowa Hawkeyes in this year's Outback Bowl; this game is certainly not a lock. Iowa is still a good team that can definitely surprise some people, but State is still the favorite.
Schedule: 12:00 pm on Jan. 1
6. Texas A&M: TaxSlayer Gator Bowl
Texas A&M is set to face off against one of the best quarterbacks in the country this bowl season in NC State's Ryan Finley, but can they handle it? Based on this season's performance, this Aggies squad should be able to take on this high powered offense with ease, as their defense has consistently held up in big games.
Schedule: 7:45 pm on Dec. 31
5. Missouri: AutoZone Liberty Bowl
Despite having one of the best quarterbacks in the country in Drew Lock, the University of Missouri just couldn't seem to put it together this season. At times they looked like a powerhouse, but then they would revert to mediocrity. Who will show up against Oklahoma State in the Autozone Liberty Bowl? Who knows?
Schedule: 3:45 pm on Dec. 31
4. South Carolina: Belk Bowl
South Carolina is heading to the Belk Bowl to face off against the University of Virginia Cavaliers in what should be a fairly intriguing game. The Cavs had an up and down season this year, so depending on what team shows up to play in Charlotte, this game may have a wide variety of outcomes. WR Deebo Samuel will not be participating for the Garnet & Black.
Schedule: 12:00 pm on Dec. 29
3. Alabama: Capital One Orange Bowl
Ahh, the first step in Bama's CFP journey!
Alabama is the best team in the country without question. They may have to face Oklahoma without star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, but it isn't going to matter: this Alabama team is as close to unstoppable as you can get. Mark it down. These guys are the National Champs.
Schedule: 8:00 pm on Dec. 29
2. Vanderbilt: Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl
Vanderbilt will be facing off against Baylor University in what should be a pretty mediocre and underwhelming game. But SEC fans should take great pride in this one, regardless. The fact that Vanderbilt, a team that finished second from the bottom in the SEC East, will still represent the conference in a bowl, just goes to show how talented this group of teams truly is.
Schedule: 9:00 pm on Dec. 27
1. Florida: Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl
The Florida Gators will cap off their season with a trip to the Peach Bowl to face off against the Michigan Wolverines in what should shape up to be an interesting game. The Wolverines may be higher ranked, but do not be surprised if these Gators pull off an upset, as Michigan has proven themselves as prone to choking in the recent past.
These teams face each other in bowl season seemingly every year, don't they? This edition takes place at noon on Dec. 29.
