So, today is the first day of College Football kicking off. It has been a long, excruciating wait for all of us. For WVU fans (including myself), we had quite a tumultuous summer with the whole Stewart/Holgorsen fiasco.
But, now, that is all behind us and we are now ready for that time of fall. College Football! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Anyway, just like the Big East poll, I got the staff of HailWV.com together and had them submit their other conference picks, conference champions, as well as who is going to the BCS. Without further ado…
Unanimous conference champion selection- West Virginia
SEC East Champions- University of South Carolina was the unanimous selection to win the SEC-E.
SEC West Champions- Alabama had 2 votes, LSU had 1 vote, and Mississippi State had 1 vote.
SEC Champions- Alabama had 2 votes, LSU had 1 vote, and South Carolina also had 1 vote.
B1G Leaders Division Champion- Wisconsin (unanimous selection)
B1G Legends Division Champion- Nebraska (unanimous selection)
B1G Champions- It was a 50/50 split between Wisconsin (2) & Nebraska (2)
With 3 out of 4 votes, Oklahoma takes the depleted Big 12 Championship this year. Oklahoma State also received 1 vote.
PAC 12 North- an even split between Stanford (2) and Oregon (2)
PAC 12 South- Here’s where it gets tricky, due to USC’s post-season ban. USC received 2 votes to win the division, however, Utah received 1 vote to take their place in the Pac 12 Title game. Arizona & Arizona State also received 1 vote each.
PAC 12 CHAMPION- It’s an even split between Stanford (2) and Oregon (2)
ACC Atlantic- Florida State (unan selection)
ACC Coastal- Virginia Tech got 3 votes, and Miami got 1 vote. (That vote was submitted before the Shapiro scandal came to light.)
ACC Champion- Florida State got 3 votes, Miami got 1 vote.
