The Pac-12 can make a legit case as the best conference in college football for the 2014 season with a number of teams who should find themselves playing in a bowl game later this year.

Stanford is the defending champion after defeating Arizona State in the Pac-12 Championship Game last year. Will we see a rematch this year?

The return of Marcus Mariota at Oregon and the hiring of Chris Petersen at Washington could make for an interesting Pac-12 north race and you can’t overlook the nation’s leading returning passer in Sean Mannion at Oregon State making things challenging for Pac-12 defenses.

Arizona State will see UCLA in the rear-view mirror with Jim Mora and Brett Hundley lurking and USC could be a threat with Steve Sarkisian in charge of the Trojans. Can Arizona put either of last year’s top three teams on upset alert this year?

Who emerges from the bottom of the conference and enters the middle class and bowl-eligibility?

See how they stack up against each other in the preseason Pac-12 power rankings.
