Rank 'Em: Big 12 vs. Pac-10 Prestige
Created: June 15, 2010, 9:15 AM
Where does Colorado rank?
Does the revamped Big 12 have more prestige programs than the Pac-10?
The Big 12 is two teams shy of living up to its name at the moment, having lost Nebraska to the Big Ten and Colorado to the Pac-10, but it staved off potential extinction by keeping Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State from following Colorado to what would have been a 16-team Pac-10.
So where is the balance of power between the two conferences? Does the Pac-10 have more prestige athletic programs, or even after losing Nebraska's history and the Colorado television market, does the smaller Big 12 still have better programs than its rival to the west?
Rank the 21 programs below in order of the prestige you think they bring to the college sports scene.
