Currently (just like 2017 too) The Mighty SEC are both # 1 and # 2.
1.2017 Alabama SEC vs SEC for NC (Georgia Alabama)
4.2011 Alabama SEC vs SEC for NC (LSU Alabama)
10.2004 Auburn 13-0 undefeated 2004 # 2 all polls before USC stripped of its NC
The Pac-12 is not even half as good as The Mighty SEC.
The top ranked of the 3 Pac-12 ranked teams is Washington whom Auburn beat. Auburn has since been beat by BOTH Mississippi State SEC and by LSU SEC.
How bad is the Pac-12?
Unranked in the Top 25 AP Poll for 2018 Stanford lost to Notre Dame. SEC Vanderbilt nearly beat Notre Dame 22-17 at Notre Dame mind you.
In the Land of Fruit and Nuts out there college football is NOT something fans out there care about. They don’t go to the games and don’t care about college football.
Pac-12 fans don’t even follow college football.
Even the Big 12 has higher ranked teams than the Pac-12 for 2018 season.
The SEC has WON 2 national championships in collegiate football since the Play-offs started. The ACC has won 1 national championship and even the Big 10 has 1 national championship. But NOT the Pac-12.
Pac-12 is being shut-out of the national championship game again this season as it was last year too.
So when you are pondering why no one is talking about the Pac-12 again this year I thought you might want to know why.
