I am taking into account that some conferences have more teams and logically would have a higher chance of more Bowl invitations. That said, I'm going with (Penn State) and the Big Ten Conference. It's not just how good your team is but also how much of a national audience, said team can draw.

Remember that many conference already have several bowl affiliations, depending on a team's finish. Top honors should go to the Big 10 and SEC.

I agree the SEC will be right up at or near the most teams total.

The better question should be which conference will have the best winning percentage. We all know the SEC will have a million teams because nearly all of those teams schedule 3-4 gimme OOC games. The Pac-10 will not have the most in, but I think they will again lead the nation in bowl percentage wins.

SEC or Big 10 will have the most because they play easy OOC schedules or not every team in their conference, so they are both almost guaranteed 6 measly wins.

If I am not mistaken; the Big Ten tends to play the majority of their games intraconference....

They always hand the most bowl games to the Big 10, even though the Pac 10 usually wins more bowl games. USC has gotten jipped by the BCS the last two years by not being invited to the championsip game, when they would have easily beaten either of the teams that were in them.
