Coronavirus active cases by Power 5 conference

The debate for conference supremacy returns with the coronavirus rankings among the college football’s Power 5 conferences. The active cases numbers were compiled looking at the Worldometers coronavirus report, which is a pretty fascinating site to check throughout the day for coronavirus data for the United States and the entire world.

We tallied the votes by active cases from each conference, and there’s no perfect system with different amount of teams and states that represent each conference. Also we lumped all schools that reside in the same conference and state into one number. For example in the ACC North Carolina, Duke, North Carolina State and Wake Forest are all in the state of North Carolina, so we lumped them all into one category.

Numbers are of April 6 at 8:00 a.m. CST.
