The Pac-12 has faded into the background in the college football scene throughout the past handful of years, especially when it comes to the national stage. Only two teams from the conference have made the College Football Playoff since it began in the 2014-2015 season, and only one team (Oregon) played in the National Championship game, and it happened the first year of the playoff’s existence.
A large reason for that, and what many people rightfully think is a positive, is that the Pac-12 has the most parity among all top football conferences. There is no Oklahoma, Ohio State, or Clemson-type team that dominates the conference year-in and year-out.
Because of that, the top team usually has a couple of losses that prevents them from the playoff conversation, but yet it also produces some of the best conference games throughout the season.

Oregon Favored to Capture Third Straight Pac-12 Championship
The Oregon Ducks are the only team in conference history to make it to the National Championship Game since the induction of the College Football Playoff, and they could find their way back to that spot with a strong season in 2021. WynnBET has them set as the betting favorites at +250 to win the conference for the fifth time since the Conference Championship Game began in 2011.
Oregon’s toughest regular season conference matchup will be against Washington on Nov. 6. With that being said, if the Ducks want to make it to the College Football Playoff, they have a chance to show the country that they belong there when they take on Ohio State in Week 2 on Sept. 11 in what will be one of the most anticipated out of conference games of the season.
USC Will Look to Make Up for Last Season’s Disappointing End
The USC Trojans were an undefeated 5-0 in the 2020 shortened season, and ranked No. 13 in the country before getting upset by the Oregon Ducks in the Pac-12 Championship Game.
With Heisman Trophy dark horse candidate Kedon Slovis returning under center for the team, USC will look to rebound this season and prove that its one of the top programs in the country. The Trojans are ranked No. 15 in the AP Top 25 preseason poll.
The Trojans most interesting game of the season will come on Oct. 23, when they take on yearly rival Notre Dame. The two teams did not face each other last season as the Pac-12 opted to play in a conference-only schedule.
