Top 10 Strongest College Football Conferences

The Top Ten
1 SEC (Southeastern Conference)

Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Arkansas, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Florida, Auburn, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Missouri. All these programs are dominant. The only bad team in this conference is Kentucky and even they hang in games with good teams. The SEC is by far the best right now. 7 National titles in a row! BOOM! Roll Tide roll!

I am a bama fan and I have a few things to say. First, you can't argue with a conference that has a team with 15 national championships (the most in college football). Second, SEC recently had an eight year national championship winning streak. And third, anyone willing to go against Alabama or in that case any SEC team then they better prepare to get their butts kicked.

SEC for the win. Easily the best conference. All teams are good except for Kentucky and even they can hang in there with the competition. Big 10 is okay but then you have teams like Rutgers(who I forgot was in the conference) and Illinois and other teams that are just meh like Nebraska and Wisconsin. ACC is just so terrible. Only good teams are Clemson, FSU, UNC, Miami. These teams always win because there is no one to challenge. Big 12 only has Texas,TCU,Baylor, and OU who are good. Pac 12 only has Oregon, Stanford and USC but still. SEC dominates

2 Big Ten

Generally throughout history the big ten has been the toughest. True. Just not the most recent history. Especially Michigan. Nobody is a more winningnes team than them as far as total wins and percentage. I mean, them and notre dame fight for percentage but their no conference having asses have used that to line up some powderpuff a in their schedules. It works to their advantage.

Are you seriously downing the SEC? They have consistently dominated the the Big 10 every year almost even in bowl games! OSU is a choke artist team! Its easy to go undefeated when you are playing against high school talent! When over half of your conference is ranked you deserve to be the best! SEC IS the GREATEST Conference! Hands Down!

As far as the "what have you done for me lately mentality" the B1G has some work to do. Michigan State, Ohio State, Michigan, Iowa, and maybe even Penn State are all shaping out to be powerhouses with the B1G East being one of the toughest divisions in College Football (3 Top 10 teams, 4 top 20 2016 recruiting classes). With MSU, OSU, and UofM all on the rise, the B1G can only go up from here.

3 Big 12

Big 12 is extremely underrated, but I think this is mostly do to being under advertised and reported. They are sweeping the bowl scene right now, save west virginia's slip up. The Big 12 always has top tier qb's and record setting offenses. The Defensive stats are skewed because of this. When high powered offenses hit, the defensive numbers get squished in turn. It isn't because of poor D, just really active and explosive offenses that keep you guessing. You blink and you could lose, no matter the score. Games really need to be watched to fully appreciate what the conference is doing on both sides, it is very different from what some of the stat lines show. My opinion, Sec - due to Alabama's recent dominance, then a close second big 12 followed by Big 10

Most balanced conference, anyone can beat anyone. Not dominated by 1/2 teams like Big 10/SEC and when competing against other conferences B12 teams usually perform well.

4 Pac 12 (Pacific-12 Conference)

First of all of All it's the Pac-12 now and I'm an SEC fan but the Pac-12 a definite second ahead of Big Ten, ACC, and Big 12 in my opinion.

I'd say
1. Southeastern Conference (SEC)
2. Pacific 12 Conference (Pac-12)
3. Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC)
4. Big Ten Conference (Big Ten)
5. Big 12 Conference (Big 12)
6. American Athletic Conference (AAC)

I think the top 3 in the big10 is stronger than the PAC12 but top to bottom the PAC12 might be just as good as the SEC. 10 bowl eligible teams last year in a 12 team conference is amazing

SEC blows they play only 8 conference games a year unlike other conferences. So while UCLA is grinding it out against Oregon, LSU is playing Florida Atlantic in week 10

5 ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference)

Is the easiest league to play in. They really ain't got no competition until they play teams from other leagues that are a helluva harder to play in

ACC has always dominated the conferences second at times to only SEC. The Big10 is considered one of the weaker conferences with its football. Far from 3rd place and even Ohio State though dominating the Big10 some years struggles and loses to the ACC and SEC in bowl games having won only against Miami in 2004.

The ACC has a long history of national championships and Every year there seems to be at least 2-3 ACC teams in the top 10. The ACC does not have the biggest list of flashy teams, but the ACC can beat any conference on any day.

6 Mountain West

Got some decent teams

7 Big East

West Virginia is the only consistant school here. USF, pitsburgh, cincinnati, and syracuse have occasional good seasons

Got some decent teams

They're dead now

8 WAC (Western Athletic Conference)

Got some decent teams

9 MAC (Mid-American Conference)
10 C-USA (Conference USA)

Some good teams, mostly forgettable and a feeder into higher conferences.

Every team in this comference is balanced. it's a mini version of the SEC consisting smaller schools instead

I love marshall

The Contenders
11 Ivy League
12 AAC (American Athletic Conference)

This conference consists of Louisville, Rutgers, Cincinnati, Houston, (that's the good ones), Temple, etc. (PS. In the 2014 season Louisville goes to the ACC and Rutgers goes to the Big 10)

They're full of themselves if they think they'll be able to compete with the SEC and Big 10. #Americanwillneverbepower6

Definitely the best G5 conference. Many teams end up upgraded. There is a good reason the B12 picked up UH, UCF and Cincinatti

13 Sun Belt

Spawns the offical hotshot but mostly a feeder for higher conferences.

14 FCS
15 Patriot League
