Top 10 SEC-Big Ten Games of the Last Decade: #5 - South Carolina v Ohio State, 2002 Outback Bowl

The Steve Bellisari comeback game, aka Columbia v Columbus, ruined by a late interception and a game winning field goal for the Gamecocks. One hell of a game for anyone who likes to see Ohio State lose and probably SC's high point of the last 10 years? Tressel was so enraged he ordered the Buckeye's to win the National Championship the following year, which they did. Holtz was so inspired that he ordered the Gamecocks to go 5-7 in consecutive seasons, which they did. Law Buckeye and I greatly enjoyed our stop in Columbia, SC, this Spring. It's a great town and if you visit, make sure you stop at Maurice's BBQ for some of the best South Carolina BBQ you'll ever taste. Just don't ask Maurice his opinion on liberals, segregation, or the Civil Rights Act. Here are the countdown games so far... #6 -- Iowa v LSU, 2005 Capital One Bowl #7 -- Georgia v Purdue, 2000 Outback Bowl #8 -- Michigan State v Florida, 2000 Citrus Bowl #9 -- Florida v Iowa, 2006 Outback Bowl #10 -- Wisconsin v Arkansas, 2007 Capitol One Bowl
