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". As Ted Miller points out, the amount of "experience" on Group of Five conference teams might lead to more big upsets and maybe even a G5 team in the College Football Playoff. But has the Pac-12 dipped below the ACC in reality?
