Recent SEC vs. Big Ten Bowl Record
(Ohio via Florida)
I too have been curious about the head to head records of the SEC vs. Big Ten after listening to the SEC proclaim their vast superiority due to their speed the past few years.
I agree with another poster, that the overall record you have posted shows no regard to the Big Ten's relationship with the Rose Bowl over a long period of time.
So I looked at recent history...the past four years. If I missed something, please let me know. But it looks to me that the Big 10 has a slight edge (6 of 11) in the bowls games in this period. There is also a slight margin of victory for the Big Ten even with Florida's big win last year.
Since - (1) one poster shows the Big Ten with an overall advantage in wins historically (2) you show the SEC has the advantage, yet fail to mention the Big 10/PAC 10 Rose Bowl relationship, and (3) the SEC has has a slight disadvantage in recent history - I just don't see your case at all... unless you want to ignore critical thinking just to feel good about the SEC. You seem to be looking for an accurate comparison...best of luck. In any case, you have some good teams in the SEC...might be prudent to cool the Big 10 bashing by some of the SEC fans until the evidence supports their claims.
