    As always, conferences with multiple divisions have their divisions averaged.

    #1. ACC. 79.125
    #2. SEC 77.125
    #3. B12 75.86
    #4. PAC 74.63
    #5. B1G 74.485

    For comparison purposes
    AAC 66.68
    MWC 62.10

    There is a 5 point spread between top to bottom.
    I wonder if that is very significant?
    What are those numbers saying exactly

    A "generic" team from the ACC (79.125) would be favored against a "generic" B12 (75.86)
    by 79.125 - 75.86 = 3.265 points on a neutral field.

    Among the P5 conferences there really isn't that much separation overall. Most of the time home field advantage is more than the difference between the talent in the teams.

    SEC 99.99
    ACC 44.76
    B12 34.32
    PAC 33.23
    B10 33.21

    The way I read that, the B1G sucked in bowl games, and it is true.

    They said on CFB Live yesterday that the only two conferences that didn't have losing records against Power 5 competition were the ACC and PAC 12. I thought that was interesting. ACC actually kicked ass at 17-9. Big 12 was the worst percentagewise at 5-8. SEC went 11-14 I believe. If I remember correctly I think I saw the Big 10 at 9-11.
