    Impressive stat about the Big XII

    Rick Bozich | Louisville football has a lot to lose in new BCS setup | The Courier-Journal | courier-journal.com

    Check the 2011 Sagarin computer rankings. The best Big East strength of schedule was 48th. The ACC topped out at 42. The SEC had eight teams in the top 25. The Big 12 had 10 of the top 13.

    Re: Impressive stat about the Big XII

    I cant honestly say that I am surprised.

    alot of our leagues teams dont play the Georgia Southerns of the college football world.

    Our FCS teams teams are top tier FCS teams like Northern Iowa and North Dakota State...

    The only school in the XII that it lacking in the schedule dept. is Texas Tech... Always have a cupcake non conference.




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    Re: Impressive stat about the Big XII

    The SEC requires each team to play 8 games against BCS opponents, the Big 12 requires 9 games against BCS opponents.

    It would be more surprising if we didn't have the best SOS.

    You may want to choose a different team for that example. Georgia Southern has like 5 or 6 national championships and has 10 times the football tradition at the FCS level than NDSU or UNI. And I think they went pretty far in the playoffs this year losing to NDSU.

    He was probably thinking of the Georgia State game from 2010, which just started up their football program. But your point stands.
