No PAC-12 Teams

Tier 4: A couple will play top-15 ball:
Tier 5: A nice bowl is the goal:
61. Washington State
Tier 6: Mid-major up-and-comers and Power 5 stragglers:
70. Utah State
79. Arizona State
Tier 7: 🙁
107. Oregon State
CBS Sports released their PAC-12 preview, and had good news regarding the Utes, placing them as the most underrated team in the conference.
Unfortunately for the Utes, CBS still predicted USC to win the South Division, and face off against Washington in the college football playoff. Both Tom Fornelli and Ben Kercheval picked the Utes to finish 4th in the South division. Only Jerry Palm picked the Utes to win the South.
