The SEC Shows its strength in New Years’ Day Bowl Games

The Florida Gators defeated Penn State 37 to 24 in the Outback Bowl.  The Florida Gators have a record of 16 -0 when they block a punt, which they did in the first quarter of this game.  The difference in this game was really special teams.

Miss. State embarrassed Michigan with a 52 to 14 win in the Progressive Gator Bowl. Michigan started strong but after the first quarter had ended it was clear that a comeback was unlikely.  After this loss some heads may roll in Michigan.

Alabama rolled over Michigan State 49 to 7 in the Capitol One Bowl.  The tides offense was the Ingram show.  However it was really the defense that won this game as Alabama held Michigan State to minus 48 rushing yards.  This win gives Alabama its 32nd Bowl win which is a NCAA record.
