Top Conferences of College Football 2011 Season

Final Non Conference Records For Each Conference


With the college football season ending in January with Alabama taking the heart of LSU to win the bcs title by a score of 21-0. This was the SEC's sixth straight title and if you include Auburn getting snubbed in 2004 it is seven out of eight years the SEC has won a bcs title. This year the SEC really showed it muscle as they had two teams in playing each other for the bcs title and finishing the regular season with the #1, #2 and # 3 teams in the nation (LSU, Alabama and Arkansas). That is really an amazing accomplishment by a conference and those three teams play in the same division in the SEC West! Although a teams conference games are important, you also have non conference games that can determine your season as well. Here are my final non conference reocrds for each conference in fbs college football for the 2011 season along with the bowl games as well.
