Boston College ranks 15th nationally in winning percentage since 2000, ahead of a least a dozen other high profile programs that are generally considered to be "better" than the Eagles. What's up with that? In our latest ESPN Insider feature, Brian Fremeau digs into the numbers and finds BC to be unmatched among AQ teams in terms of consistency. There is no safer bet than BC to win 8 or 9 games, but can they take the next step and win an ACC title?

With the departure of Nebraska and Colorado, the Big 12 is making plans to play a nine-game round-robin schedule and forego a conference championship game. That ought to make the road to a title for Texas or Oklahoma a bit easier. But how much easier? Brian Fremeau discovers that aside from last season, the conference championship path wouldn't have been much different for the Big 12 elite.

There are plenty of other factors in play in Nebraska's move to the Big Ten, but what might the effect be on its football team's wins and losses?

The reign of superconferences will have to hold off for a little bit longer. In the last 24 hours, the impending implosion of the Big 12 was unexpectedly defused. The Texas Longhorns aren't going anywhere, and all indications suggest Texas A&M is staying put as well. Fox Sports has reportedly offered a richer TV rights package to the 10-member Big 12 than anyone had anticipated (or fathomed). Texas will take home most of those spoils, but everyone else in the conference -- especially the Big 12 northerners who stood to lose most in the Pac-16 scenario -- have to be satisfied as well.

The great Conference Crisis of 2010 is really hitting its stride now. Nebraska's Board of Regents confirms that the Cornhuskers are officially severing ties with the Big 12 and will apply for Big Ten membership. That application is expected to be a mere formality and does not require a personal essay or standardized test scores. Nebraska does expect to receive the big envelope -- a projected $10 million boost in annual revenue for athletics. Nebraska hopes to accelerate the transition and begin conference play in 2011.

For what may turn out to be only a very brief moment in history, the Mountain West conference now has ten members. Boise State will leave the WAC to join TCU, Utah, BYU, and others.
