    My gut says Cap 1 vs. Michigan State but holding out hope for Cotton vs. A&M, Okie State, OU, or Nebraska, well hopefully not Nebraska.

    (THU) 12/30 - Music City / Nashville (ACC/SEC)
    (FRI) 12/31 - Liberty / Memphis (C-USA/SEC)
    (FRI) 12/31 - Chick-fil-A / Atlanta (ACC/SEC)
    (SAT) 01/01 - Outhouse / Tampa (Big 10/SEC)
    (SAT) 01/01 - Capital One / Orlando (Big 10/SEC)
    (SAT) 01/01 - Gator / Jacksonville (Big 10/SEC)
    (TUE) 01/04 - Sugar / New Orleans (BCS/BCS)
    (FRI) 01/07 - Cotton / Arlington (Big 12/SEC)
    (SAT) 01/08 - Birmingham / Birmingham (Big East/SEC)
    (MON) 01/10 - BCS Championship (BCS/BCS)

    These are the nine SEC bowl tie-ins and the BCS Championship. We're out for the five listed in red and should be out for the Chick-fil-A and Gator but it's still possible.

    *We played in the Capital One last year so that could be a negative.
    *The Outhouse usually prefers a team from the East even when a team from the West is more deserving. I hope they get stuck with a BAD team from the East. This and the Birmingham Bowl are the only two I didn't request tickets for.
    *The Cotton would be great but we'll be playing there to start next season so they may not want us. (The date sucks though as the kids will be back in school.)
    *If we don't get invited to the Cotton Bowl, I hope we go to the Gator Bowl.

    We really screwed up last Saturday and it cost us a BCS bowl. I was looking forward to the Sugar or Orange. Considering we start a high school QB, I guess a New Year's Day Bowl is still pretty good.

    Just guessing...

    If Auburn beats South Carolina:
    -Auburn to BCS Championship
    -Arkansas to Sugar
    -LSU to Capital One or Cotton

    If South Carolina beats Auburn:
    -South Carolina to Sugar
    -Hopefully Auburn or Arkansas to Orange
    -LSU to Cotton or Outback

    I don't believe we'll end up in the Gator or Chick-Fil-A this year.

    Why are there 3 Big 10 vs. SEC tie in's and ZERO Pac 10 vs. SEC tie in's?

    Simple, how many LSU fans would travel to see the Pasadena Bowl and how many Oregon fans would travel to see the Birmingham Bowl. Except for the major bowls, teams want to stay local so their fans will travel. The Mid-West has no major (and very few minor) bowls so their fans have to travel.

    The Cotton Bowl announced this afternoon that Texas A&M will be the Big-12 team there. Now hopefully we will get to match up against them.

    This is my guess, otherwise the Cap 1 is blowing it.
