The Big 12 and SEC account for nine of the top 15 teams (five Big 12, four SEC), and the debate grows louder each week: Which league is better?
The Big 12 represents half of the top six and five of the top 14: No. 1 Texas, No. 4 Oklahoma, No. 6 Texas Tech, No. 9 Oklahoma State and No. 14 Missouri.
Meanwhile, the SEC counters with No. 2 Alabama, No. 5 Florida, No. 8 Georgia and No. 15 LSU.
So, what if the leagues squared off head-to-head, top-to-bottom?
That’s what we wondered, and our college staff picked the winners, pitting No. 1 vs. No. 1, No. 2 vs. No. 2, and on down the line.
