Conference Championship Analysis- Week 13 Edition

For the seventh-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 13 games.

Big Ten East- Michigan State 

Big Ten West– Iowa (The Hawkeyes are the surprise Big Ten West Champs.)

Big 12- Oklahoma (In the preseason, everyone was picking Baylor or TCU to claim this conference but I had the Sooners! Don’t believe me, here’s the proof: )
