Where the rest of the SEC landed in bowl season

Your SEC bowl game schedule.

By now I am sure you know that your Kentucky Wildcats will be playing the Penn State Nittany Lions in the Citrus Bowl down in Orlando. Kentucky was the top SEC team not named Alabama, Georgia, LSU, and (somehow) Florida.

The Alabama Crimson Tide is obviously the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff and opens as a 14.5 point favorite over the Oklahoma Sooners in the Orange Bowl. The Georgia Bulldogs are taking on the Texas Longhorns in the Sugar Bowl, the LSU Tigers will face the UCF Knights in the Fiesta Bowl, and the Florida Gators, who lost to Kentucky in case you have not heard, round out the New Year’s Six slate against the Michigan Wolverines in the Peach Bowl.

So where did the rest of the our SEC brethren end up?

Texas Bowl:

Vanderbilt Commodores vs Baylor Bears, December 27th, 8 PM on ESPN

Music City Bowl:

Auburn Tigers vs Purdue Boilermakers, December 28th, 1:30 PM on ESPN

Belk Bowl:

South Carolina Gamecocks vs Virginia Cavaliers, December 29th, 12:00 PM on ABC

Liberty Bowl:

Missouri Tigers vs Oklahoma State Cowboys, December 31st, 3:45 PM on ESPN

Gator Bowl:

Texas A&M Aggies vs North Carolina State Wolfpack, December 31st, 7:30 PM on ESPN

Outback Bowl:

Mississippi State Bulldogs vs Iowa Hawkeyes, January 1st, Noon on ESPN2

The Tennessee Volunteers, Ole Miss Rebels, and Arkansas Razorbacks are the only SEC teams that will not be participating in a bowl game.

Of those teams that are playing, they will benefit from the extra practice. And, of course, conference bragging rights are up for grabs during bowl season.
