Mailbag: Conference contenders come to light
The halfway point of the college football season is when conference races begin to get interesting.
They're of particular interest in Missouri, Tennessee and Clemson, S.C., where championship aspirations might have seemed far-fetched in August but don't appear too far off in October.
The Tigers (Missouri) are in the thick of the Big 12 North race, while the Volunteers are contending in the Southeastern Conference East Division. The Tigers from Clemson are looking strong in the Atlantic Coast Conference Atlantic Division.
Appearances can be deceiving, however.
Are those teams achievers or deceivers? Reading on may provide some clues.
