Dark Horses with Potential to Win Major NCAA Basketball Conferences in 2014-15
Garry Jones/Associated Press

Every year, there are a few dark horses who end up winning regular-season championships in the major conferences of college basketball.

I mean, come on, how many people had Virginia beating Duke, North Carolina and Syracuse to win the ACC last year? And I don't seem to recall anyone picking Villanova to win the Big East while we were busy handing the title to Marquette on a silver platter.

The teams on this list aren't the favorites or the top challengers to the favorites. In most cases, these teams aren't even expected to finish in the top three in their respective conferences.

But that doesn't mean it can't or won't happen.

I wouldn't go betting the farm on any of these teams to claim 2014-15 regular-season titles, but you just might find yourself with a dozen farms if you happen to bet on the right one.
