Mark your calendar: Big Ten beatdown day

And no, it's not (necessarily) Sept. 11, when Alabama hosts Penn State. It's New Year's Day, 2011, when three bowls will measure SEC-Big Ten prowess, all at the same time:

* Capital One Bowl, 1 p.m. -- first pick from SEC and Big Ten after BCS choices are made.
* Outback Bowl, 1 p.m. -- second pick after BCS choices.
* Gator Bowl, 1:30 p.m. -- No. 5 SEC vs. No. 3-4 Big Ten.
