Big 12 vs. SEC: Which is the better conference? (Good piece)

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.
