Pac-12 Bowl Projections – Week 12

Pac-12 bowl projections heading into Week 12. Washington falters to USC at home and now needs help to reach the College Football Playoff.

No team should want to play USC right now.

The Trojans may have three losses, but Clay Helton has done a marvelous job of making adjustments after stumbling out of the gate, and ‘SC showed in its road win over Washington on Saturday that it is playing some of the best football in the nation.

Helton and Co. have reeled off six straight wins after a 1-3 start, and the latest victim was Chris Petersen’s Huskies. U-Dub can still win the Pac-12 and be a one-loss conference champ, but how would that team potentially stack up against other one-loss squads in the eyes of the selection committee?

Despite the loss, U-Dub remains in the CFP projections this week, but it will be interesting to see how far the committee drops the Huskies on Tuesday night.

Where does your favorite Pac-12 team land in the postseason mix this week?
