When it comes to College Sports there are six major conferences. The six conferences are the big east, ACC, SEC, Big 12, Big 10 and the Pac 10. The big east has teams like Connecticut, West Virginia, Syraucse, Cincinnati, Villanova. The Atlantic Coast Conference(ACC) has teams like Duke, North Carolina, Virginia, Wake Forest. The Big 12 has teams like Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Oklahoma State. The Big Ten has teams like Purdue, Iowa, Penn State, Indiana, Illinois. Lastly, the Pac Ten has teams like UCLA, USC, Washington, Washington St. There are the six major conferences, but when it comes to the March Madness in College Basketball watch out for the mid major conferences (OVC, MVC,Ivy league, etc)
