Every FBS football team has hopes of winning the College Football Playoff National Championship, but this isn't a realistic goal for most schools. Only a select list of contenders are truly in the running each year, leaving the rest to strive for other achievements.
Such as winning a conference title, a goal that's within reach of nearly every team in the country.
There are 10 conferences at the FBS level—five so-called "power" leagues and then five more lumped together on a second tier known as the "Group of Five." Compare and contrast them all you want, but each is its own entity, and thus whoever wins that conference stands out from the rest of the pack.
As part of the long list of "way-too-early" pieces that come out during college football's offseason, we've predicted the winner of all 10 FBS conferences for the 2016 season. Check them out, and if you think otherwise, let us know in the comments section.
