SEC jumps over Big 12 in human polls
By David Ubben
ESPN Stats & Information has released its latest iteration of the college football conference rankings, and the Big 12 has officially lost its lead over the SEC in the human polls.
The Big 12 still holds the overall lead, but it holds the No. 1 spot by only 0.9 points. Conversely, the Big 12 and SEC are ahead of the Pac-12 by nearly 11 points.
The Big 12 has a 25-3 record in nonconference play, the best of any conference, and two of those losses came by Kansas, the Big 12's 10th-place team.
Still, the SEC grabbed four of the nation's top six spots, and you can see that progress in the new conference rankings.
TCU and West Virginia gave the Big 12 a pair of wins over the ACC.
