The Pac-10 Conference is on the rise this 2010 college football season, showing almost all-around strength from all its members.
On the other hand, the SEC is remaining strong as well, continuing its dominance in the recent BCS era and claiming the last four National Championships.
Could this be the year that the Pac-10 overtakes the SEC? Both conferences have teams ranked in the AP Top 10, and seemingly enough, four of these will teams battle it out in two conference games this Saturday in what could be a precursor to who could win their respective conference.
The following is a list stating seven signs that could point to the Pac-10 taking over the reigns. Please note that this is not a battle of which conference is "better," but rather possible precursors that might show a shift of dominance, or perhaps a level of equality between the two conferences.
