Why Southern Bowls Want SEC Teams Rather Than West Coast Teams

Posted by CJ Bas on August-10-2009 Add Comments

Every year there are plenty of comments about the fact that SEC teams get what some people think is an inordinate amount of bowl invitations—not just to the BCS bowls, but second and third tier bowls as well.


Arguments are made that west coast teams draw bigger viewing audiences and thus should be receiving those invitations. Of course nowadays the SEC is contractually tied in with those bowls, but there were de facto tie-ins long before the contracts were drawn up, and it was the bowls who came to the SEC wanting those contracts, not vice versa.
