Problem is this applies to every conference except the ACC.

Check this chart out...

Home wins vs. bowl-bound teams/road wins vs. bowl-bound teams/neutral site wins vs. bowl-bound teams/total wins vs. bowl-bound teams

SEC: 11 home, 1 road, 1 neutral = 13
Big 12: 12 home, 1 road, 1 neutral = 14
ACC: 8 home, 5 road, 0 neutral = 13

All 3 conferences played 48 non-conf games. Another stat proving the ACC was better than the SEC this year. Overall, the Big 12's wins were better than the SEC's as well even if the numbers were similar. Without Florida's wins over FSU, Miami, Hawaii and Bama's win vs. Clemson the list for the SEC would be absolutely horrendous. Like I said before, the SEC has 2 teams (UF and to a lesser extent Bama) but after that...pure garbage.
