PAC 12 Bowl Projections!

     We are winding down to the final few weeks of the season and I thought this would be a good time to share my Pac 12 bowl projections.    The conference has seven bowl slots to fill.   I believe that nine teams will become eligible, and each should get an invitation.    I Don’t believe the PAC 12 will get an at large birth in the BCS.    Below is a list of the teams.    How i see them finishing the season and my prediction on where they will be headed.

      OREGON 10-0    Final record 13-0    The Ducks have Stanford at home this weekend and close at Oregon St.    I believe they win those two and then will host USC and win the Conference Championship.    They will play in the National Championship game.

      USC  7-3   Final record 9-4     The Trojans travel to UCLA this weekend and then host Notre Dame.   I think they sweep both before losing the rematch against Oregon in the Conference Championship game.    They should get an invite to the Alamo Bowl.

      Oregon St.   7-2   Final record 9-3    The Beavers have three remaining home games to close the year.   The Ducks are sandwiched between California and Nicholls St.    winning two fo three gets the Beavers to 9-3 and an invite to the Holiday bowl in San Diego.

      UCLA  8-2   Final record 9-3    The Bruins close with a home games against rival USC this weekend and Stanford the next.   I believe USC nips them this weekend, but they rebound with a win over the Cardinal to close the season.   An invitation to the Sun Bowl is on the horizon.

      WASHINGTON  6-4   Final record 8-4     The Huskies close with road games at Colorado and Washington St .   They should win both games, which will get them to the Las Vegas bowl.

      STANFORD  8-2   Final record 8-4    The Cardinal closes the season on the road with games at Oregon and UCLA.   I’m concerned about the quarterback play here.    I think they lose both road games to close at 8-4.    I think they stay home for the bowl season and play in the Kraft Hunger bowl in San Francisco.

      ARIZONA  6-4   Final record 7-5   The wildcats get to go bowling this year under new coach Rich Rodriguez.    They play at Utah this week, which I think they lose.   They return home to play rival Arizona St. a game which I think they win.    The New Mexico bowl awaits.

      ARIZONA ST.   5-5   Final record 6-6     The Sun Devils have yet to qualify for a bowl as they stand with five wins.    They host Washington St. this weekend, which should get them the needed six wins.    Then they close at Arizona, in what i see as a loss.    My guess is they get an invite to the Independence bowl.

      UTAH  4-6   Final record 6-6    This is a stretch as the Utes need to close with two victories to get bowl eligible.    I think they do it with a home win over Arizona this week and a road victory over Colorado next week.    Should they win those two I think the get an invitation to the New Orleans bowl.
