Speaking of the Big Ten - SEC. Ironically, the Big 10 would have major bragging rights over the SEC over the past 5, 6,7,8, 9, years, etc. if Ohio State hadn't struggled so much with that conference.
Going back to 2002 (the year Ohio State won their national championship), the Big 10 is 4-2 in the Capital One Bowl (vs the SEC) winning the last four, and 3-3 in the Outback Bowl (vs. the SEC). Not bad, considering we hear time and time again how awful or mediocre the Big 10 is and how dominant the SEC is and, of course, all those games are played on SEC soil (Florida).
So, add OSU's losses vs. Florida and LSU and the Big Ten is 7-7 in bowls the last six years vs the SEC (8-7 if you include Michigan over Vandy last year), with a national championship and two runner-up's. Not too shabby.
