Week 12 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

The bowl picture in the Pac-12 is an absolute mess. Utah, Oregon, Washington and USC are bowl eligible with two weeks left to go. The other eight teams are, amazingly, either 4-6 or 5-5. That puts them all in a position to play their way into a bowl game. That cannot happen of course since they are playing each other in many cases, but will get six or seven teams into a bowl game. The bottom of the Pac-12 is interesting, but the top of the conference has much more excitement. Both Oregon and Utah are one-loss teams and are likely to face each other in the Pac-12 championship game. If both enter with one-loss, the winner of that game will certainly be in the mix for a playoff spot.
