Podcast of Champions – Jimmy Lake fired plus Pac-12 football week 11 recap and week 12 preview

This week Podcast of Champions host Ryan Abraham goes solo talking about the biggest news in the Pac-12 with Washington head coach Jimmy Lake being fired one week after he was suspended by the school. UW now joins USC and Washington State as the Pac-12 programs that have fired their head coaches midseason in 2021, setting up what should be a very interesting Apple Cup next week (host David Woods coined the game as the “Application Bowl” on Twitter).

Ryan also talks about the poor television quality of Pac-12 games shown on ESPN, the scenarios in which Oregon and Utah can win the North and South divisions this upcoming weekend, which Pac-12 programs are bowl eligible (ASU, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA and Utah) and which ones are eliminated (Arizona, Colorado and Stanford). Plus he goes over the latest Podcast of Champions Power Rankings, breaks down all of the week 11 action in the conference and previews all of week 12 including three rivalry games. 

And as always they spend time answering all of the questions the listeners manage to send in, including text messages and voicemails!
