Is the Pac-12 North or SEC West the toughest division in college football?

The Pac-12 North has yet to lose to the Pac-12 South.

Is the Pac-12 North the toughest division in college football? The Pac-12 South still has no wins against the North.

Josh Schlichter, Pacific Takes: I think the SEC West has a slight edge on the Pac-12 North right now, but both of those divisions are leaps and bounds ahead of every other division out there.

David Piper, Addicted To Quack: I'd still give the edge to the SEC West, with 'Bama, LSU, and TAMU. But the Pac-12 North is mighty close.

Sean Reynolds, Block U: I think the SEC West is tougher ... by a hair.

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.

Adam Butler, Pac Hoops: I'd be willing to pit the P12 North in a death match with anyone. Maybe even bring Eastern Washington along for battle as an alternate.

Trevor Wong, Conquest Chronicles: No. I wouldn't say it's the toughest division in college football, at least not over the SEC West (Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M, Auburn, Ole Miss).

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.
