Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together again in studio recapping what they thought would be an all chalk Pac-12 football weekend with heavy home favorites cruising to victories. Turns out, week 11 was total chaos with Conference of Champions cannibalism going on, knocking out two of the three hopefuls for the Pac-12 to make the College Football Playoffs for the first time since 2016.
Things got off to a rocky start Friday night with Colorado leading USC 3-2 after the first quarter. The Trojans righted the ship and blew out the Buffs as expected, but it set the table for a bad vibes Saturday for two of the other title contenders. Oregon had the marquee matchup with Washington, but the Ducks were still two touchdown favorites at home. The Huskies had other plans and pulled off the stunning upset thanks to another huge night from transfer quarterback Michael Penix. With Oregon losing, it opened up conference championship opportunities and eliminated some strange tiebreakers for the LA schools. In one of the Pac-12 After Dark games UCLA couldn’t take advantage and fell to three touchdown underdog Arizona, putting their Pac-12 title on life support.
Week 12 features another full slate of Pac-12 games with a virtual semifinal that has USC travelling to the Rose Bowl to take on UCLA and Utah heading to Eugene to take on Oregon.
As always Dave and Ryan spend the last part of the show answering your voicemails, texts and emails with questions about Pac-12 football plus lots of other topics.
