Colleges Prefer SAT over ACT?

Can anyone provide insight into this? I've heard certain colleges prefer ACT over SAT, even if the two scores are relatively similar. For example, colleges would prefer a 2260 SAT over a 34 ACT.

I always thought ACT/SAT were equivalent, but I've heard from some that SAT is preferred? I'm in the West Coast, looking to attend UC's, but my ACT is significantly better than my SAT.
