How many SEC schools are in bowl games?

The bowl season will officially begin on Sunday with the announcement of bowl game opponents. The SEC has ten bowl game tie-ins in addition to the playoffs, therefore with 12 SEC teams bowl eligible, all of those places will be filled. Here's a list of each team's bowl game: Capital One Bowl (Washington vs. Georgia) Allstate Sugar Bowl (Louisville vs. Florida) Rose Bowl (California vs. Ohio State) Orange Bowl Miami (FL) vs. Virginia Fiesta Bowl (Texas vs. Oklahoma) Peach Bowl (North Carolina vs. Auburn) College Football Playoff Semifinal (Atlanta) National Championship (New York)

There are also two other bowls that will be making decisions about their seasons later this month: the Heartland Bowl and the Independence Bowl. Both of these bowls receive votes from the SEC Council when deciding which teams will play in them. This year, both of these bowls received one vote from the council and thus they will be playing the highest-ranked non-SEC team that is available.

In conclusion, all eleven teams in the SEC will be going to a bowl game this season.

The modern bowl game began when the 1972 Miami University RedHawks played Ohio State in the 1973 Rose Bowl. The game was sponsored by a beverage company that wanted to promote its brand among college students, so it offered a cash prize for winning teams.

The first bowl game was played on January 1, 1946, between UCLA and USC. The Rose Bowl was originally called the Los Angeles Bowl because it was held in downtown Los Angeles at what was then called the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The name change came about because the game was no longer being played on New Year's Day, so it was necessary to find a new date. The Rose Bowl Committee chose this symbol because of its connection with beauty and elegance. Today, the game is played in Pasadena, California, and is broadcast on NBC. It is one of the most prestigious sporting events in the United States after the Super Bowl.
