10 wins - 3 times
9 wins - 2 times
8 wins - 3 times
7 wins - 7 times
So 3/15 times a 10 win team goes to Atlanta, and LSU gets the honor twice? Thanks SEC for all the hard work you do....

I have no doubt had Oklahoma been in the BCS, that Texas would have been in the Cotton. And had that happened, no way in hell would A&M and UT played that bowl game, all the power brokers in Texas would have made sure of that. LSU-UT would be a big draw and the Cotton Bowl would have been all over...

2 winless teams winless in the the league, plus 2 others whose only win is over one of the winless teams. That equals a lot of extra wins for teams that normally wouldn't be there.
That's why 10 wins got Arky a BCS bowl 2 years ago, and this year 10 wins is going to get somebody(probably us) Chi...

It's not really a record, but there wasn't a good way to explain it in the title. For the first time since Tommy Hodson in 1989, an LSU QB has thrown for more than 250 yards in 3 consecutive SEC games.

It was the first time in 3 years('08 Ole Miss) that LSU has been down by 14 or more points. Also, only the third time in that span we've been down double digits, '09 Florida(10) and '10 Arky(11) the other two.

Marino's per game average in 1984 was 317.5. Drew is at 332.6, Brady at 326.6, and Rodgers is now a shade behind at 316.8. It's hard to believe that at least one of these guys won't break the record this year...

So KY beat WKU 14-3 in the first game of the season. As we've seen, the teams are probably similar, which is why WKU is a semi-successful Sun Belt team and KY is the 2nd worst team in the SEC this year. Against KY, our offense looked like this:
8-21 for 169 yards passing with 1 TD.
