The Big 12 remains No. 1 over the SEC, though the SEC closed the gap.
The system used here equally weighs the rankings from The Associated Press Poll and a compilation of available BCS computer rankings in order to determine which conference is the strongest and weakest from top to bottom.
The Pac-12 is nearly ten points behind the No. 3 Big Ten and 5.3 points ahead of the No. 5 ACC. The conference ranks fourth in terms of The AP poll and the BCS computer rankings.
