Despite a few hiccups in the bowls, the Big 12 South was pretty much acknowledged as the best division in the country last season.
The South still holds the title, but barely, if you believe the Sporting News. The magazine used its own preseason rankings to compile a score for each division, and the South edged the SEC West by one.
If you were to create head-to-head matchups, based on the Sporting News rankings, it would look like this:
Texas vs. Ole Miss
Oklahoma vs. LSU
Oklahoma St. vs. Alabama
Texas Tech vs. Auburn
Baylor vs. Arkansas
Texas A&M vs. Mississippi St.
I like Texas, OU, Tech and maybe even A&M in the head-to-head contests. Any thoughts?
