My sure to be wrong conference predictions

Let's see how poorly these look in December.

SEC

East -- Georgia

West -- LSU

Champ -- LSU

Surprise -- Kentucky

Disappointment -- Miss State

I think the Dawgs can start 0-2 and still win the East. Richt has been able to circle the wagons in the past, I think he'll be able to do it again this year if necessary. The West is a toss up, but LSU's schedule, outside of the trip to Tuscaloosa, sets up better than Bama's.

Big 10 

Leaders -- Wisconsin

Legends -- Nebraska

Champ -- Wisconsin

Surprise -- Michigan

Disappointment -- Iowa

Wisconsin v. Nebraska is going to be a great matchup. Hoke will have Michigan in the top 10 when Nebraska comes to town.

Pac 12

North -- Oregon

South -- Arizona State

Champ -- Oregon

Surprise -- Washington

Disappointment -- UCLA

Oregon's final 5 games may well keep them out of the national title game. At Washington and Stanford followed by USC and Oregon State will be a lot tougher than it sounds.

Big 12

Champ -- Oklahoma

Surprise -- Oklahoma State

Disappointment -- Texas Tech

Surprisingly deep conference even with the departures. I'm not buying Oklahoma as the best team in America.

ACC

Atlantic -- FSU

Coastal -- Virginia Tech

Champ -- FSU

Surprise -- Georgia Tech

Disappointment -- NC State

FSU v. Virginia Tech finally gives this league a championship game worth watching. FSU defeats undefeated  #3 Virginia Tech.

Big East

Champ -- Pitt

Surprise -- Cincinnati

Disappointment -- UConn

Tough call between Pitt/USF/Cincy/WVU but Pitt's strong defense and new coach give them the edge. Cincy beats Tennessee and NC State out of conference but catch USF and Pitt on the road.

National Championship

Oregon over Wisconsin -- Who knows what will happen this year? I think these two are as good a bet as any to run the table in a major conference so here they are.
