Conference Hierarchy

The conference hierarchy formula is simple. 5 points for top 5, 4 points for 6-10, 3 points for 11-15, 2 points for 16-20, 1 point for 21-25. The three teams left out this week, by virtue of not being in a P5, were Notre Dame, USF, and San Diego State.

1. Big 10: 20 points (5 Penn St, 4 Ohio St, 4 Wisconsin, 3 Michigan)

2. Pac 12: 18 points (5 USC, 4 Washington, 3 Washington St, 3 Stanford, 2 Oregon, 1 UCLA)

3. ACC: 15 points (4 Clemson, 4 FSU, 3 Virginia Tech, 2 Louisville, 2 Miami)

2. SEC: 12 points (5 Alabama, 3 Georgia, 2 LSU, 1 Auburn, 1 Mississippi St)

1. Big 12: 10 points (5 Oklahoma, 5 Oklahoma St)

Conference Hierarchy

The Conference hierarchy rankings are based solely on My Top 25. 5 pts for top 5, 4 pts for 6-10, 3 pts for 11-15, 2 pts for 16-20, 1 pt for 21-25. You can have one great team, but to be the best conference, you’ve got to have a strong top half. When it comes to the power structure in college football, the top half carries the bottom (see the SEC East for the last decade).

1. Pac-12 (17 pts)

2. Big 10 (16 pts)

3. ACC (15 pts)

4. SEC (14 pts)

5. Big 12 (11 pts)
