Major League Baseball’s 2018 All-Star Game is slated for Tuesday night, July 16 at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. 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.

The Big Ten and SEC rank as the top conferences in the nation for 2018. Additionally, both leagues are loaded with talent on defense and have plenty of returning talent at the skill positions. With that in mind, what would the outcome be if the Big Ten and SEC played an all-star game in July with the best players from each conference? The idea isn’t going to come to fruition, but it is an interesting concept to ponder.

How would a potential Big Ten vs. SEC All-Star Game this break down for 2018? Below is a look at how the two teams stack up at each position.
