Which conference is the strongest from top to bottom this season: the SEC or the Pac-10?
Don't you wish the BCS would set aside one week in which every SEC team was forced to play its Pac-10 equivalent? Us, too. Yet since we know that will never happen, Scott Van Pelt and Ryen Russillo have gone ahead and imagined it for us.
Here's how it went down: Each SEC team was matched up with a Pac-10 team of similar talent (based on conference standings). Then, SVP and Russillo debated each matchup, made their predictions and evaluated which conference is the best from top to bottom. Below you will find matchups like Oregon versus Alabama, Stanford versus Florida and Auburn versus Arizona. Now's your chance to pick which team would win each mythical matchup. Debate away!
Scott Van Pelt: 5-5
Ryen Russillo: 7-3 in the SEC's favor.
