Ranking the conferences

ESPN Stats & Info is taking a measure of where the various FBS conferences stack up at this season, and you can see their tally here after two weeks.

The rankings system uses a formula that equally weighs the rankings from the USA Today Coaches' poll and a compilation of available computer ratings.

At this point, the Pac-10 ranks fourth, well behind the SEC, Big Ten and Big 12.

Of course, if the Pac-10 puts on a good show on this critical weekend, it figures to move up.
