This season for the Pac 12 is about showing they can compete nationally again. They’ve been out of the College Football Playoff the past two seasons. Can they get a team into the College Football Final Four?
They have non-conference games that can show they’re ready to contend starting with Oregon vs. Auburn opening weekend. Who steps up this season and gets on the national radar?
The league will be competitive this year with several good teams in the middle but only three are contenders.
I love Pac 12 Afterdark even if being on Central Time it makes it hard to finish some of those late night games. I love the “Breakfast with the Pac 12” with early morning Pacific Time kickoffs. The league needs to get their teams exposure if they’re going to get back into playoff contention and having early results can get them in the national conversation all day on Saturdays.
