Pac-12 and the Next Best 3, Week 11

As we approach this Veterans/Remembrance Day weekend, let's start

is at risk of not filling all of its bowl slots. The conference is
contracted to seven bowl games. At the moment there are two bowl
eligible teams (Stanford and Oregon) and two teams with five wins.
(Southern California would also be eligible were they not on
