SEC Football Standings 2012: Gators earn BCS berth

Chris Trotman

Florida's strong resume and one-loss season helped the Gators earn a trip to the 2013 Sugar Bowl, where they'll take on the Louisville Cardinals.

It's officially bowl season in college football, as the regular season and conference championships concluded this past weekend. The Florida Gators represented the SEC well enough to earn a berth in the 2013 Sugar Bowl -- despite finishing behind the Georgia Bulldogs in the final SEC standings.

Florida's lone loss came to Georgia in October, when the Gators fell to the Bulldogs, 17-9. Consequently, Georgia won the SEC East division, but lost to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC title game.

Georgia's loss to Alabama moved Florida ahead in the BCS picture, and it will be the Gators and not the Bulldogs in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

The Gators notched conference wins over Texas A&M, Tennessee, Kentucky, LSU, Vanderbilt, South Carolina, and Missouri. Florida also defeated Florida State in its annual rivalry game, putting together one of the best resumes in all of college football.

Georgia, meanwhile, will play in the Capital One Bowl, against Nebraska. LSU, who finished No. 8 in the BCS rankings, will play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl against Clemson.
