SEC bowl projections: Week 14

Say goodbye to two SEC teams making the inaugural College Football Playoff.

The Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 all owe a debt of gratitude to Ole Miss for knocking off Mississippi State this past Saturday, dropping the previously No. 4-ranked Bulldogs to 10-2 and out of the playoff picture.

But it's not all doom and gloom for the SEC. Realistically, the chances of getting two teams in the playoff were slim anyway.

Commissioner Mike Slive can hold his head high knowing that an astounding 12 teams (out of 14) from his conference qualified for bowl games during the regular season.
