Is the Pac-12 North the toughest division in college football? The Pac-12 South still has no wins against the North.
Jason Bartel, AZ Desert Swarm: I'm gonna go SEC West over Pac-12 North. Alabama, LSU, A&M;, Auburn and Arkansas all in one division? Good lord. I think Oregon State's 2-0 conference record is a bit inflated having played Utah and Colorado.
Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: I would still give a slight edge to the SEC West. I think their big three are just a little bit better than the Pac-12 North's because I don't think Washington is nearly as proven as Texas A&M; or LSU and their depth teams have an advantage too - Auburn beat Washington State and I think Arkansas, Mississippi and Mississippi State all look better than Oregon State and Cal, who have been putrid on defense.
Phil Fraser, Ralphie Report: Tough to say, because they don't have the same number of teams, but I'd still go with the Pac 12 North over the SEC West. Alabama hasn't been dominant and A&M; can't stop anyone. LSU has looked the best so far, but not better than Oregon. Auburn beat WSU, but I don't think they're better than Oregon State.
