Account for home games?

9 Bowls established for SEC teams (8 in the Southeast) makes the SEC the conference with most (home) bowl games. Of course it has more wins than any other conference, 9 Bowls automatically a year? Gives most losses as well.

Sugar Bowl, Capital One Bowl, Outback Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Chick-fil-A Bowl, Liberty Bowl, Music City Bowl, Independence Bowl, PapaJohns.com Bowl.

SEC not guaranteed bowls
by: Mo Johnson

Just a note that the SEC does not have 9 bowls automatically each year. In fact, last year SEC teams only went to 8 bowls. This year 10. No matter what they all have to qualify to go to a bowl.

But yes, it's true there are indeed lots of bowls and the SEC does usually get as much or more than other conferences (though note the ACC went to 10 last year). It's more a matter of how many teams your conference can qualify (get 6 wins)...

Bowls
by: Anonymous

The reason for SEC having so many bowls, well to start with you have to have wins to qualify. Then each bowl commisions decide which would be good games and draw the best crouds. This is nothing new. If you owned a bowl game wouldn't you do the same? It is a fact that the SEC has the highest attendence rating (average). That is not just the top of the conference, but average of the entire conference. Also people do not generally like to travel north in the winter. What should the SEC do, start losing to make other people in the country happy?
