By virtue of Florida's 37-26 victory over Florida State on Saturday, the Gators are on their way to capturing the SEC's second BCS bowl bid behind the eventual SEC champion.

That means the Capital One Bowl -- a New Year's Day Big 10-SEC matchup in Orlando, Fla. -- will have first pick of a group of two-loss SEC teams. It will pick between South Carolina, Texas A&M, LSU and the SEC Championship loser to fill the spot.

Jim Vincent, a Capital One Bowl scout at Kyle Field on Saturday night, said the Aggies are a good get for any bowl game.

"They'd be a great draw," Vincent said. "They have good fan support, first year in the SEC and a quarterback that's just dazzling."

Vincent said he hadn't seen A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel in person until Saturday.

"I'm thinking he's the real deal," he said.

Vincent said Capital One Bowl officials will make their decision in the days following the Big 10 and SEC championship games next Saturday.

After the Capital One Bowl picks, the Cotton Bowl and Outback Bowl will choose their participants from the SEC. The Cotton Bowl typically leans toward the SEC Western Division with the Outback Bowl leaning to the East.

    Who wants to play the a Big10 team, would rather go to Cotton.
