Pac-12 Bowl Projections – Week 8


Pac-12 bowl projections heading into Week 8. Washington remains on track for a College Football Playoff berth, while Utah could be eyeing roses.


Chris Petersen’s Washington squad was off this past week, but the Huskies remain in play for a spot in the Peach Bowl in the latest postseason bowl projections.

We’ll see how the College Football Playoff selection committee treats U-Dub if it is unbeaten when the first rankings are released, but it has shown that it is a complete football team despite playing a weaker schedule.

Meanwhile, Utah remains the projected Pac-12 squad for the Rose Bowl, while Cal checks in this week as a bowl participant.
