Bret Bielema wants Big Ten/SEC Football Challenge

The SEC spring meetings are underway this week, and former Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema presented an idea that would match his current conference, the SEC, against his former conference, the Big Ten.

Bielema said that he would love to see a Big Ten/SEC football challenge take place over a two weekend span.

Could you imagine if Bielema’s Arkansas team took on Wisconsin? Or, how about Alabama vs. Ohio State or LSU vs. Michigan?

The idea would of course follow along the lines of college basketball’s current Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

It is no secret that the SEC prides itself on being the best league in college football. Wouldn’t this be a fun way to help settle that argument on a yearly basis?

Vote here on if you would be in favor of a Big Ten/SEC Challenge?
