re: SEC Has Won 9 of Last 10 Cotton Bowls - Only non-SEC win last 10: Mizzou 07/08 (Posted on 12/9/13 at 10:59 am to MizzouTigers20)
Even more impressive when you realize that it is technically an unbalanced tie-in...
The team from the big12 usually finishes 1-2 spots higher in conference than the team in the SEC. I think it's actually Big12 #2 vs SEC #3/#4 -- where the Cotton usually takes a team from the west while the Outback takes a team from the east and they essentially share the pick.
