Podcast of Champion hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back together again in studio recapping another exciting weekend of Pac-12 football that once again showed how important home field advantage is in the conference. Week eight had only four contests and three of the four home teams notched victories with the lone road team (Washington) failing to cover the 7.5 point spread at Cal. The marquee match-up was of course the Bruins on the road at Oregon leaving the Ducks as the lone Pac-12 team left undefeated in conference play. There are some wild scenarios for which two teams make the conference title game in this first season with no divisions with UCLA, Oregon, USC and Utah as the main teams in contention to make it to Las Vegas.
The guys also discuss what Pac-12 commissioner George Kliavkiff had to say at basketball media day including comments about his letter to the UC Board of Regents that asked the board to block the Bruins from leaving the conference. He also doubled-down on his statement that UCLA would be worse off financially leaving for the Big Ten than it would be staying in the Pac-12.
Looking ahead to week nine we get things started with a tough road test for Utah heading to Pullman to play Washington State on Thursday night followed by what mostly look like lopsided contests on Saturday outside of the interim coach bowl with Arizona State at Colorado.
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.
