The SEC's headed back for another round of Shreveport, with the Independence Bowl changing hands yet again.

Shreveport's Independence Bowl has held a very wide range of conference tie-ins during its 33-year history. It started as a Southland bowl, picking up SEC ties in 1995. It then paired the Big 12 and the SEC before recently becoming an ACC-vs.-Mountain West deal. Now it's about to drop its MWC tie to bring back SEC partnership:

It makes sense for the conference to expand its range of bowl ties, as it's picked up a pair of teams to reach 14. And why not make it a bowl that owes its most cherished memory in part to one of those new schools? (Mainly snow, yes. But A&M was there!)
