So far in the bowl games we have seen SEC teams in the non-BCS bowl games having success in their games. The Mississippi Rebels were able to win and cover against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the Mississippi St Bulldogs routed the Rice Owls as a touchdown favorite. In this SEC conference versus AAC conference matchup we see yet another short favored SEC school against a much weaker conference. Vanderbilt was able to close out their season strongly as the team won four straight and seven of their past nine games. Included in that run were wins at home against Georgia and road wins at Florida and Tennessee. When they were bowl eligible at 6-4 the Commodores posted wins at the Volunteers and at home to Wake Forest to close out the regular season. Houston went the other way as the Cougars dropped three of their past four games to close the regular season. Houston showed the ability to beat the lesser teams on their scheduled but when they had to step up in class the team failed. Houston went 0-4 straight up against their four toughest opponents as the team loses outright to Cincinnati, Louisville, Central Florid and BYU. Vanderbilt is a better tackling team as the club is a very good defensive team as they rank 24th overall in college football in total defense. Houston is 85th nationally on defense by allowing 420 yards per game.
