The Big Ten and the SEC dominated the TV ratings for the college football regular season.

According to Ryan Brown, the five most watched games all season featured a team from the SEC or Big 10. The only other team even in the top five was Notre Dame, which is an independent. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The tweet above tells you everything you need to know about the landscape of the college football world. The SEC and Big Ten, who are bitter rivals and enemies, rule the sport.

The fans are craziest, the people are more passionate, the TV audiences are huge and people just care a whole lot more.

There’s a reason the best teams in America are in those two conferences.

While I trash the SEC on a regular basis, there’s no doubt at all that I respect the fans. They’re no joke at all.

They’re passionate people who just want to win at all costs. While I might hate them, I’ll always respect a rival who is willing to put it all on the line.

As for the Big 12, PAC-12 and ACC, it’s clear they’re in a second tier, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The reality is they’re just not going to catch the Big 10 and SEC.

As long as the guys up in the north and men in the south keep taking care of business, our domination probably won’t change anytime soon.
