Conference Championship Analysis- Week 14 Edition

For the sixth-straight year, I will be publishing weekly November columns analyzing the conference championship races.  Like my bowl bubble watch, there is not really a column like this on any other mainstream college football site.  Bold teams have already clinched their division or conference.  Italicized teams are my predicted champions of their respective conferences/divisions at this point in time.  This list is updated through all week 14 games.

ACC AtlanticFlorida State

ACC CoastalGeorgia Tech

Big Ten East- Ohio State

Big Ten West– Wisconsin

Big 12- Baylor (Baylor, TCU, and Kansas State are all tied atop the conference standings with one loss.  Kansas State’s chances of winning the Big 12 are slim by virtue of losing their head to head matchup with TCU and having to travel to Waco at the end of the season.  Both Baylor and TCU should win their season finale, so the Bears will likely win the Big 12 thanks to their victory over TCU.)

Pac-12 NorthOregon 

Pac-12 SouthArizona

SEC East- Missouri

SEC West- Alabama

American- Memphis (UCF, Memphis and Cincinnati all have one conference loss, but Memphis has completed their regular season at 7-1.  UCF can earn a spilt conference championship by virtue of winning at ECU next Thursday night. Cincinnati already lost to Memphis, so even if they beat Houston next Saturday, they will lose head to head tiebreaker.)

C-USA EastMarshall

C-USA WestLouisiana Tech (My best preseason pick of the in a long time!)

MAC EastBowling Green

MAC WestNorthern Illinois

MWC MountainBoise State

MWC WestFresno State

Sun BeltGeorgia Southern
