Podcast of Champions – Pac-12 goes unscathed in week one including Colorado’s huge TCU upset and Califord to the ACC

In this episode of the Podcast of Champions hosts Ryan Abraham and David Woods are back in studio to recap an absolutely stunning weekend of Pac-12 football where everyone, and we mean everyone, scored more points than their opposition. Including USC’s week zero win, the Conference of Champions is 13-0 to start it’s final season in existence and is the first conference to start off with 13 wins since at least 1980.

Coach Prime and Colorado were the talk of week one, stunning No. 17 TCU on the road behind impressive performances behind Travis Hunter on both sides of the ball and quarterback Shedeur Sanders who threw for 510 yards and four touchdowns.

Cal scored 50 points for the first time since 2016, Utah clobbered Florida missing several key starters, Oregon scored 81, Washington rolled over Boise State, Oregon State dominated a tough San Jose State squad on the road and Arizona State sneaked out a win during a haboob dust storm that delayed their game nearly three hours.

The guys breakdown what impressed them from all of the games from opening weekend and reveal their Pac-12 Power Rankings that feature a new No. 1 team and Colorado moving up to the top half of the Conference of Champions.

Before the games even got started the news broke that Califord, California and Stanford, would be joining the Atlantic Coast Conference along with SMU starting in the 2024 season. The move leaves only two programs left in the Pac-12, Oregon State and Washington State. The guys talk about what options are left for the Beavers and Cougars with time running out to figure out their futures.

As usual Ryan and Dave end the podcast answering listener emails and questions from the YouTube chat.
