Last week, we visually analyzed how the conferences were doing against each other, and it's back for week 2 of the college football season. This time, in response to a request, I have included a sub-breakdown of BCS conference teams. Note that their numbers are also included in the FBS breakout.
|FBS (including BCS)||BCS (Conferences)||Other|
|Conference||Last Rank||W||L||%||TTL FBS
|Big 12||T2||15||2||.882||17||3||1||.750||4||7||0||1.000||7||24||Very strong|
|Mountain West||4||4||3||.571||7||2||2||.500||4||4||1||0.800||4||11||Pretty good.|
|Big East||12||3||7||.300||10||0||3||.000||3||5||0||1.000||5||15||Moving up|
|Note: Games don't always add up because some teams played conference foes.|
In general, the Big 12, Big Televen, Pac-10 and SEC are doing pretty well against all comers. The Pac-10 has fallen off the pace just a bit from last week, but it is still looking good.
At the lower end of the spectrum, the Big East and ACC have improved, the ACC only marginally but the Big East made a big jump from last to 8th, although its utter futility against BCS conference schools is quite telling. The Mountain West is performing well so far, .500 against BCS conference schools and is showing up the ACC and Big East pretty badly at this early juncture.
Right now, the MAC seems to be the preferred conference of cannon fodder for all the BCS confernces, as you can see by the fact that they almost double up their nearest competitor, Conference USA, in terms of BCS games played. You have to love the fact that the MAC takes on this many BCS teams, even though their success has been less than stellar so far.
