Though I agree SEC is best conference, Some things to think about:

The Big Ten usually has 2 teams as well in BCS so the teams are matched evenly mostly in those games.

Also, SEC bowls are in SEC country, Big Ten doesn't get that luxury (lot easier for fan travel, especially important in non BCS bowls.

Lastly, the numbers don't refer to conference rankings, they refer to bowl picking order. For instance, if the Capital One Bowl this year wanted Missouri vs Michigan, they could have done so.
