So what conferences do you think had the strongest and weakest showings this bowl season? I know that the National Championship game has yet to be played, so feel free to wait until after that to make your choice if you so desire. I'll freely admit that I'm biased, but I think the Big Ten had a really fantastic showing this year. They had seven bowl eligible teams and won four games. The three losses were all pretty close (Iowa State beating Minnesota 14-13, Auburn beating Northwestern 38-35, and Texas Tech beating Michigan State 41-31) but their wins were all great wins against Top 15 ranked teams With OSU, Penn State, Wisconsin, and Iowa beating Oregon(7), LSU(12), Miami of FL(15), and Georgia Tech(9), respectively. For a conference that was constantly slammed for being unable to win bowl games, the close losses and four wins (two of which were BCS bowls) really gives them a strong showing. Also impressive was the Mountain West Conference simply because they had five bowl eligible teams and only one loss (TCU to Boise State). The are really making a strong name for themselves, and it would have been stronger if only TCU would have pulled it out. As for the worst showing, I'm going to have to say the PAC-10. They had seven bowl eligible teams, and only two wins (USC over Boston College and UCLA over Temple). This year, to me, showed that when USC isn't at the forefront of the PAC-10, there isn't really alot to distract from the fact that the rest of the PAC-10 just isn't up to par. Maybe they can turn it around, but it will be interesting to see how the PAC-10 looks for the next few years.
