F/+ of major conferences without the top team

I'm not sure if anyone's posted anything about this before, but since each conference has such a clear frontrunner this year, I thought it'd be interesting to look at how strong each conference was without their best teams (Alabama, FSU, OSU, Baylor, Stanford). I just took the average and median F/+ rankings (as of 11/2) of each conference, not including those teams. The results are... probably what you'd expect, with the SEC and Pac-12 leading the way.

Here's the mean, median, best, and worst for the four power conferences:

ACC: 51.62, 54, 18 (VT), 84 (NCSU)

Big Ten: 47.64, 46, 10 (Wisky), 112 (Purdue)

Big 12: 51.89, 42, 24 (Oklahoma State), 97 (Kansas)

Pac-12: 36.73, 28, 4 (Oregon), 94 (Colorado)

SEC: 38.15, 25, 11 (Mizzou), 91 (Kentucky)

I'd be interested to see how this changes (if at all) for the remainder of the season, and how things in past seasons shook out this way. Fairly simple way to look at this and there's nothing groundbreaking here, but I needed a reprieve from my research for a second and this was quick enough to code. I was hesitant to post this because I feel it's simple enough to look at that someone must have done it already, so I apologize if that's the case.
