What if Big Ten and SEC College Football Teams had an All-Star Game in 2022?

Major League Baseball’s 2022 All-Star Game is slated for Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. While the Midsummer Classic won’t satisfy the hunger for football at this point in the summer, the All-Star Game got the staff at Athlon Sports thinking about potential all-star matchups at the college football level. What if the SEC and Big Ten had an all-star game during the offseason? The idea won’t ever come to fruition, but it’s an interesting (and fun) concept to ponder as we tick away the days until kickoff and media days get underway.

How would a potential Big Ten versus SEC All-Star Game break down for college football in 2022? Using Athlon Sports’ projected all-conference teams for ’22, here’s a look at a potential starting lineup for each conference. 

Which conference has the advantage? Let’s us know at @AthlonSports:
