All preseason predictions aside, the only thing teams really care about is if and where they'll be playing come December and January.
And, for teams in the major conferences—and some mid-majors—the hopes are that they'll be involved in one thing. The Bowl Championship Series.
Some serious national notoriety, not to mention a huge payout, are all the motivation athletic departments need to do everything possible to get their squads to college football's Promised Land.
But, what conferences have had the most success in reaching the BCS, and more importantly, winning their games, since its implementation prior to the 1998 season?
Of those conferences, who, and what teams, are going to have the most success in reaching this goal in 2010?
Note: Independents (specifically Notre Dame) weren't included in the following slides. However, for those curious, Notre Dame has an 0-3 record all-time in BCS games. Don't expect an Irish BCS run in 2010, either.
