Is the Pac-12 getting worse or is the ACC getting better?

NCAA Football: Pac-12 Media Day Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

For a few years now, it seems like the vast majority of people accepted the SEC being the best conference in college football, and the Pac-12 as the second-best. Well, things may be changing a bit. Phil Steele released his toughest conference rankings, and the ACC has slipped just ahead of the Pac-12 for second place. The main reason appears to be "experience".

But has the Pac-12 dipped below the ACC in reality?
