Since there are 120 teams, I'd make 10 conferences. With 10 conferences, I'd drop the Big East from the BCS so that there are 5 BCS and 5 nonBCS (which would also open up an extra bowl slot to be competed for.)

Big 10: Since Academics are important in the Big 10, I'd leave out Iowa State (and as a Big 10 homer.)
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Michigan State, Michigan, Penn State, Pittsburgh.

Pac-10: There aren't all that many West Coast teams, so they would have to move East a hair and pick up BYU and Utah.
USC, UCLA, Cal, Stanford, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, BYU, Utah.

ACC: They would focus primarily in North Carolina/Virginia, and pick up a few Northern schools need be.
Connecticut, Boston College, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Duke, Wake Forest, Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Louisville, Maryland, Cincinnati

SEC: Purely Southeast geographic consideration
Florida, Florida State, Miami (FL), Georgia, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Clemson, Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, Mississippi, Vanderbilt

Big 12: They are Big, afterall.
Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, LSU, Arkansas, Memphis, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska


Non BCS:
Big East: Would become a ACC/Big 10 B team
Army, Navy, Rutgers, Buffalo, Temple, Marshall, East Carolina, Ohio, Akron, Kent State, Northwestern, Central Michigan

MAC: Would become an ACC/Big 10 B team
Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Toledo, Miami (OH), Bowling Green, Ball State, Northern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee, Iowa State, Arkansas State, Iowa State

Gulf Coast Conference: Would focus on the gulf coast; teams that didn't make the SEC/Big 12 cut
FAU, FIU, Troy, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana Monroe, Louisiana Lafayette, Central Florida, South Florida, Southern Mississippi, Tulane, Houston, UAB

CUSA: Teams that didn't make the Big 12 cut.
Baylor, SMU, TCU, North Texas, Tulsa, Rice, UTEP, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Colorado, Colorado State, Air Force

MWC: Teams that didn't make the Pac-10 cut.
Wyoming, UNLV, Nevada, Utah State, Boise State, Idaho, Fresno State, San Jose State, San Diego State, Hawaii



My numbers didn't add up to 120, so I missed two schools... some adjusting would have to be done.

As part of a compromise to avoid being shut down by Congress, all BCS autobid conferences expand to 20 teams:

Pac 20

Washington/Washington State
Oregon/Oregon State
Boise State/Idaho
Stanford/California
Nevada/San Jose State
Fresno State/Hawaii
UCLA/USC
UNLV/San Diego State
Arizona/Arizona State
Utah/Brigham Young

Big 20

Big 12

Utah State/Wyoming
Colorado/Colorado State
Nebraska/Air Force
New Mexico/New Mexico State
UTEP/Texas Tech
Oklahoma/Oklahoma State
Texas/Texas A&M
Houston/Baylor
North Texas/Texas Christian
Louisiana-Monroe/Louisiana

SEC

Rice/Southern Methodist
Arkansas/Arkansas State
Louisiana Tech/Louisiana State
Southern Miss/Tulane
Mississippi/Mississippi State
Tennessee/Georgia
Florida/Central Florida
South Carolina/East Carolina
Vanderbilt/Kentucky
Alabama/Auburn

Big East

Louisville/Memphis
Cincinnati/Akron
Northern Illinois/Western Michigan
Central Michigan/Eastern Michigan
Ball State/Notre Dame
West Virginia/Pittsburgh
Syracuse/Army
Rutgers/Connecticut
Temple/Navy
South Florida/Florida International

Big Ten

Missouri/Tulsa
Iowa State/Iowa
Minnesota/Wisconsin
Illinois/Northwestern
Kansas/Kansas State
Michigan State/Michigan
Toledo/Bowling Green
Penn State/Ohio State
Indiana/Purdue
Miami-OH/Ohio

ACC

Maryland/Virginia
Boston College/Buffalo
Virginia Tech/Marshall
Kent State/Western Kentucky
North Carolina State/Wake Forest
Georgia Tech/Florida State
North Carolina/Duke
Miami-FL/Florida Atlantic
Middle Tennessee State/Clemson
UAB/Troy

All conferences get the right to host a four-team, two-round playoff during the first two weeks of December, prior to the BCS selections.

South Alabama would become the 21st team in the ACC once they are a full member of FBS, as the ACC becomes the first conference to move to three divisions.

It would be sad, it's been their home for 100 or so years. However, it just seems that over the decades, as the Big Ten reigned as one of the top conferences, Northwestern really never kept up.

This is Dream Conferences afterall, and I've always wanted a combination of Pitt, Kentucky, Notre Dame, or West Virginia to join the Big 10!

Also, Northwestern is a dry campus... it may only be an hour drive to watch an away game, but the lack of beer can be disheartening for a Wisconsinite like myself.

I was reading an old article and thought I'd make a post of a dream conference i wanted to see.

Growing up in the northeast, I always wanted to see a football conference will all the local schools. Others were in the general footprint and weren't in other conferences, so they made sense as well.

And to think, it wasn't that far away from happening. But the time has passed and it never will be. But ohhhh so close.

Boston College
Notre Dame
UConn
Syracuse
Rutgers
Temple
Penn St.
Pitt
WVU
Virginia Tech
Miami
Florida State


The only two I-A/FBS catholic football schools, Penn St, what more can you ask for in the northeast?

Let's just do this. Let's take 10 conference commissioner's and just hold a fantasy draft with FBS schools. Then do it again with the non-FBS schools.

I'm going to spend the next 3 hours skipping work to figure this out.

Watching the Rutgers vs Army game and thinking about northeast football.

Face it...BC is gone. Penn St aren't going to leave the Big Ten. No other ACc schools would leave.

But why not make the most of what you have in the region and make each other stronger?


UConn
Syracuse
*Buffalo
* Army (FB only)
Rutgers
* Temple
* Navy (FB only)
Pitt
WVU
Louisville
Cincinnati
South Florida

The Big East has alot of resources to reinvent itself and become a stronger conference. it should take a risk with some Universitys that are willing to develop their athletic programs at a high level. The market exists for a 12 team Football conference that is separate from the Basketball schools. An affiliation could be made with the remaining Basketball only schools.

The Big East Football and All Sports Conference could be as follows.

North Division
UConn
UMass
Syracuse
Buffalo (SUNY)
Rutgers
Boston College

South Division
Pittsburgh
Louisville
Cincinnati
West Virginia
Central Florida
South Florida

A Conference with Championship play could appeal to a Boston College and would offer them everything that they are getting in the ACC.

Four Corners Continental USA Conference (NE, NW, 'SW', Florida):

Although, I wouldn't call it a 'Dream Conference' ;)
