The Pac 12 in my opinion is the best conference so far in college football this year. But the SEC has 4 national title contenders in Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M and LSU. I know most SEC fans will not agree with me on this but the Pac 12 has more quality non conference wins than the SEC has up to now. But I only think that the Pac 12 has two or three true national title contenders in Oregon, Stanford and UCLA but as a conference it is the best this year so far. The ACC has made some strides but really only Florida State, Clemson, Virginia Tech and Miami are make some noise in that conference. The Big 12 is kind of down this year in there non conference games schedule but Oklahoma and Baylor are looking strong in that conference along with a surprising undefeated Texas Tech squad. Here are my college football conference rankings along with each conference best non conference victories.

  1. Florida (4-1) at LSU (5-1) – This is a huge game for both teams, LSU already has a conference loss and Florida is 3-0 in conference play but this will be there first true test of the season. The Gators have already lost one road game to rival Miami(FL) in week 2. The Gators back in of the schedule is brutal as they still have to face Missouri, Georgia, South Carolina and Florida State. The Tigers still have to face Alabama and Texas A&M as well.
  2. Oregon (5-0) at Washington (4-1) – The Huskies came up short on the road last week against Stanford but they did show that they belong. But now they face a high powered Oregon team that has put up 50 plus in every game they have played this year. This will be the Ducks first true test of the season.
  3. Missouri (5-0) at Georgia (4-1) – The Bulldogs pulled off a big victory last week in overtime against Tennessee avoiding a big upset by the Vols. Now they go home to face a undefeated Missouri team who no one is talking about.
  4. (Thurs.) Rutgers (4-1) at Louisville (5-0) – Louisville has cruise through is schedule so far in the. This will be it first true test of the year as they take on Rutgers. Last year these two teams battle for the Big East title and Louisville won 20-17. On its way to the Sugar Bowl where they whopped Florida.
  5. Texas (3-2) vs Oklahoma (5-0) (Dallas) – This is the season for Texas after barely escaping last Thursday against Iowa State on the road with a 31-30 victory. Oklahoma will not feel sorry for the Longhorns either as they destroyed them last year in the Red River Rivalry 63-21.
