This is specific to this year.
This year the teams out west are all very good. I don't think the public realizes how good some of these teams are, Utah St, Fresno, SDST, SJST, Boise, Oregon St are all excellent teams on my "bet on" list. I am not sold on ARIZ sT or OK St.
The bottom three of the SEC are horrbile, but the other 9 teams are top 23, and 6 teams are arguably all top 6. SEC football is 12 months a year, so the Bowl is the peak time of year. Other conferences are in to football 3 months a year.
The Big East is better than people think. Cuse is on a huge roll right now. Teddy Bridgewater at Lousiville is one of my favorite QBs. I am not sold on Rutgers. Pitt is now healthy and playing great football. Cinci is inconsistent, but sometimes good. These are not great teams, but they do compare favorably with the non-elite teams in the ACC, P12, B10 and B12, and the bottom of the SEC.
B10 is not good this year, and they lose two of their top teams. That means other teams play a tougher bowl. The two B10 teams I like are Wiscy and Northwestern.
