Final Rating of College Football Conferences

The following is the final ranking of all 10 College Bowl Conferences, with the result of each conference team in bowl games. Breitbart Sports joined only Football Insiders in picking the Pac-12 as the top conference (122 human and computer rankings picked the SEC, while one picked the Big12).

The conference team is followed by the chance they were given to win their bowl game and the anticipated margin based on www.masseyratings.com. Their opponent is then listed, followed by the actual result and margin. The final number tells you how many points that performance added or subtracted from their conference’s final rating.
