In January I'll begin doing the Power 16 and soon my NCAATournament predictions while continuing the mid-major rankings. I've been asked to do another conference power ranking this month and I think now is a good time. This way we can kind of see how all the conferences stack up with each other before conference play really swings into full gear.

revelation for BYU and the entire WCC.
- Big Ten - The entire conference enjoyed non-conference play while picking up numerous quality wins including Kentucky and Duke. Have eight or nine teams with legitimate NCAA Tournament aspirations while Ohio St. may be the best team in the country. Non-conference record: 123-28.
- Big 12 - There's only 10 teams in the Big 12 this year and with the losses of Nebraska and Colorado the conference as a whole is improved. Kansas, Baylor, and Missouri look like potential Final Four teams. Non-conferenc record: 91-24.
