I did this several months ago, when someone else initiated something similar...

Let me preface this by saying this was not my idea/invention. On another board, someone was trying to make a point about OSU's domination of the B1G during the decade of 2010 -19. My problem was he stopped at six teams in his rankings.
His were OSU, Wiscy, Mitton St, MissedAgain, Ped St, & Iowa. He used the records of his top 6 against each other as his focal point...I added Nebackdoor & Northworstern to the table, and here is what all that revealed:

Team Overall Top 8
OSU 117-18 46-9
Wisc 102-34 33-22
MSU 92-40 27-25
PSU 88-42 23-24
Missed 85-44 20-28
Iowa 81-49 20-29
Neb 75-54 19-28
NW 72-56 18-34

Besides a decent record, I thought it was appropriate to add those last two because they've both competed in the Conference Championship Game.
The other point of this (in MY opinion) is that I think in the interests of fairness, the conference schedule should be adjusted as follows:
Break the divisions down into A & B groups. A group being the top four teams in each division. With the cross-conference play, each A group plays two A group teams from the other division. Maintain this grouping for 10 years, then re-figure. (I'd bet that there wouldn't be a hekk of a lot of change).
