Trying to rank the conferences this late in the year is a lose-lose proposition: Either bowl season proves you right, in which case everything you said was "obvious," or bowl season proves you wrong, in which case you look like a moron.
But I guess I have a death wish. After 13 weeks of play, every team and league in America has shown me enough from which to draw conclusions, so why not go out on a limb and try to draw them?
We'll learn a lot about the ACC and SEC when Clemson and South Carolina square off this weekend, though far less will be learned when Florida State travels to the Swamp. Still, this is merely an appetizer for bowl season.
Once the rubber meets the road in the next six weeks, all bets are off.
