Future bowl tie-ins for SEC: Possibilities?

1. Holiday Bowl in San Diego versus a PAC 12 team. Great trip and would be a great game.

2. Las Vegas Bowl: who cares who ya play- you are in Vegas!

3. Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl: San Francisco. If you go 6-6 or 7-5, a trip to San Fran would be better than Birmingham, Memphis, Nashville or Shreveport

Most team's fans that go 6-6 or 7-5 aren't going to spend the money to travel to San Francisco for a down year. Theres a reason the shitter bowls the SEC go to are so close.

I would like to see some SEC-PAC12 matchups though but between the top teams.

Vegas flights are normally reasonable. I would love to do that trip.

The ideal bowl to me to "add" that I wish we had gotten it in this last round of expansion would be the Alamo Bowl with a tie in against the Pac12.

Making the new order:
Playoff
Sugar
Orange(At least 3 but no more than 5 times every 8 years in the new tie-in)
Chick Fil-A/Cotton/Fiesta if/when we are good enough(no tie-in)

Cap 1/Alamo shared tie(like the Cotton and Outback in the old setup)

Outback/Belk/Texas/Liberty/Music City/Gator(all shared and without preference in the new setup)

Lose the BBVA and Independence.

I agree on the Holiday Bowl. I'd try to get a spot in DC or the Pinstripe for a 3-4 year deal, just to see how the fans respond.

It's a different trip than just going to Florida or Atlanta every year.

inb4 Tennessee doesn't go to bowls anymore

Do you think many fan bases would travel very well all the way to the SF if their team is 6-6 or 7-5?
