The SEC is the premier conference in college football. It is where NFL teams deploy their most trusted scouts to evaluate players, and it is the most competitive football league in the sport —college or NFL.
The Big Ten is a traditional conference led by classic powers Michigan and Ohio State.
On the recruiting front, the conferences compete to sign many of the same players.
This cycle, a good pro-style quarterback likes the Buckeyes, but Texas A&M's offense is equally intriguing. A linebacker from Georgia also digs Ohio State, yet Georgia and Alabama are putting on the press. And there's also a slot wide receiver from Florida who is flirting with Michigan, which is causing Florida to heat up its pursuit.
