Anyway, he shared the magazine's Top 25, and as you can see, it's ACC-heavy, with five spots including three in the Top Ten.

By contrast, the Big Ten also has five, but with only one ranked above #15, the Big 12 four, the AAC three, the SEC, Pac-12 and WCC two. The MVC and the A-10 have one each.

If you're looking for the greatest and most up-to-date info, you can't go wrong with the Handbook. It's really tremendous.
