I think they're the better team, even considering the cupcake non-conference schedule having two divisions in the SEC allows its teams to play. Against the same competition they're pretty much evenly matched, statistically, not a lot separates the two, but South Carolina has the motivation and very likely the crowd support hands down. TCU or Oregon would whip both of them.

I guess it remains to be seen whether a substantial number of Auburn-haters with no ties to South Carolina will show up at the SEC Championship. But Auburn should have more fans than South Carolina as Auburn is closer to Atlanta and has a pretty significant alumni base in Georgia. From my observations at UGA games, Auburn fans travel better in addition to be more obnoxious than South Carolina fans. I wouldn't be surprised to see a nice African-American turnout to see the controversial hometown qb, aka son of a preacher man.
I'll be rooting for Auburn. A bunch of my fellow UGA alums were cheering for Alabama the other week. But I got no love for Saban and even less love for Spurrier. No true UGA fan can root for any team coached by cocky Steve.
Will be looking forward to seeing bowl-bound Baylor perhaps in Houston later this month.

Your probably right though, I'm sure Colorado and Nebraska both left the Big 12 because it's the most awesome and competitive conference in college football. As excited as I am to have Nebraska in the Big 10, I suspect it will still take them a few years before they present a legitimate challenge for the title. The Husker fans I've talked to thought they had a much easier time in the Big 12 and are a little worried about being able to do as well in the Big 10.
Sandy wrote:Well, I think a first-time meeting is going to occur in Bowl season, under the roof in San Antonio at the Alamo Bowl, looks like my Arizona Wildcats will be meeting up with the Oklahoma State Cowboys. This one might be the better of the Pac-10-Big 12 matchups between a couple of evenly matched teams.
I know Flick hangs with the Cowboys. OSU will have a chance to beat the other Stoops brother. I'll take Arizona in a squeeker.
