Vegas Odds On NCAAF Conference Rankings 2015
The Intercollegiate Athletic Association of the United States (IAAUS) was officially created in 1906, and became the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), in 1910. NCAA football teams are divided into three divisions, with the strongest teams in the 11 Division I conferences. Division II and Division III house some great talent every year, but Division I football conferences are the name of the game if you are looking for the most popular teams, the most heated rivalries, the most long-standing traditions and National Championship contenders. Those 11 NCAA Division I Football Conferences are the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Conference USA, Mid-America, Mountain West, Pac 10, SEC, Sun Belt and WAC as of 2012. Vegas Odds On NCAAF national champions coming from some conferences are better than others, because there are a handful of Division I football conferences that year in and year out consistently rank multiple teams in the top 25 preseason rankings, as well as after all the BCS Bowl Game dust has settled.
About College Football Conference Rankings
With approximately $2 billion gambled annually on the BCS National Championship Game alone, Division I College Football is obviously a massively popular spectator sport. In the United States and around the world, Division I NCAAF conferences are the undisputed home to the best amateur talent playing American-style football. And that incredible athletic talent is spread among the 11 football conferences which have some of the most loyal fans of any sport worldwide. Every year Southeastern Conference fans argue vehemently that their conference is hands-down the most powerful in all of college football, and that claim is hotly disputed by Big 12, Big Ten and PAC 12 loyalists. But it is hard to argue with their recent success, having won six straight BCS National Championships from 2006 to 2011.
The SEC has won 8 of the 14 BCS National Championship Games as of this writing, and that conference is 8 - 1 in BCS Championship Game play, but they in no way have a lock on Division I football dominance. The ACC, Big East, Big Ten, and PAC 12 have also won a BCS title, with the Big 12 claiming 2 championships. But the BCS has only been around since 1998, and from 1936 to present day 30 out of the 120 eligible football bowl subdivision teams have won a share of the national title by either the Coaches Poll or the AP Poll, spread across all conferences. And in each individual NCAA Division I football conference are some of the oldest and hottest contested rivalries in all of college sports.
Known simply as "The Game," the Big Ten Conference Ohio State - Michigan matchup was first played in 1897, and has Michigan holding the all-time lead at 58 - 43 - 6. And as much as those two teams truly hate each other, there is certainly no love lost between SEC teams Auburn and Alabama, which is arguably the most intense in-state college football rivalry in the nation. Known as the Iron Bowl, the two teams have played 76 times since 1893, with the contest growing more heated in recent years. Alabama holds a slight edge at 41 - 34 - 1, and they now play every year. And the Oklahoma - Texas "Red River Rivalry" in the Big Ten has been played since 1900, with Texas leading 59 - 42 - 2. The two teams now play every year at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, and to say that these two universities dislike each other is putting it mildly.
Whether you follow college football to watch traditional in-conference rivalries, or cheer for your favorite team and conference to whip up on the opposition in postseason bowl games, the NCAA Division I football conferences offer some exciting wagering opportunities for the football lover in all of us. In recent years the major conferences have seen a lot of realignment, and your favorite team may now be playing in what used to be your most hated conference. While nothing is certain in the hard-fought world of college football, Vegas Odds On NCAA Division I Football continuing to be driven by conference play is a sure bet.
